Hey there Southern Lady,
I usually am on the lupus forum but I saw your post on the home page and had to chime in. I was diagnosed a year ago and have been doing fairly well up to the last 2 weeks. I woke up this morning being the stiffest I've ever been in the last 8 months and all I can think of is that it's the weather!! I live in Mississippi and we have had such a crazy winter with all kinds of weather. It started to rain last night and the temps dropped down again and just Monday it was 60 degrees. Thursday and Friday we are supposed to get snow as well. I'm sooooo tired of it. I go to see my rheumy on Thursday and I have a feeling that my sed rates will be up. I guess all we can do is hang in there and baby ourselves when we need to. Thanks for listening.

Ditto. I am sooooo over this. Just discovered I can't get my shoes or boots on wearing three pairs of socks. Guess I just won't go to the store.
