I'm not surprised you're sick Redrose. Your body is dealing with A LOT right now. It's very common to get bronchitis or pneumonia from lupus. It's called lupus incuded pneumonia. Not contracted by being out and around people at all. It's the disease. I got this 1999, and again in 2003. Expect to be sick if your body is run down, coming off your meds, and being pregnant. That's a lot for a healthy body to go through, let alone someone with lupus. I noticed my pneumonia come on really fast. Took me by surprise actually. So, it's an unfortunate bit of reality for you. Sorry.
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
