Well, Hello to everyone and a big congradulations
to everyone!! We made it through Christmas and unless you're planning a big New Years Eve party, the worst is over. I had my Mom and my two brother here for Christmas, but luckily they rented a cabin so I didn't have a housefull staying here. We live in the North GA mountains, so cabin rentals are big here. The weather has been awful, especailly from a Lupus stand point, cold and rainy. It's been just warm enough not to snow. It makes the fatigue and joint pain so much worse and it's been like this for weeks. Doing another round of methylpred in hopes of keeping the flare under control, so far so good. I must say that so far the headaches have been much fewer and less severe since I started blood pressure meds. I am just so thrilled that things can settle down a bit now that the Holidays are over. My kids are still a bit wound up, but at least they have plenty of new toys to play with. I hope everyone had a safe and happy Christmas.
