Hi everyone,
 
     A week-end camping trip with a group of my students turned into a nightmare for me.  I admit, I wasn't as diligent wearing my big floppy hat and keeping out of the sun.  And maybe some of my negligence was due to feeling pretty well before the trip and thinking I could get away with it.  Well, I paid the price and am now feeling miserable.  I woke up with swollen hands, swollen feet, nausea, and malaise.  As the morning has worn on, I am experiencing more fatigue and that just lousy feeling that comes with it.  And the worse part of it is that I have work to do to get ready for my school week, including lesson plans, grading papers and special education paperwork. ERGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!  This is when I really hate having Lupus.  I have been dealing with this disease since 1997 and you would think I would know better.  But that's the problem.  I get to feeling good and I get lulled into a sense of complacency, which usually gets me into trouble.  Thankfully, I have today to rest as I go about the task of completing my work.  The camping trip WAS fun and the kids had a blast.  Most of them did not realize how awful I was feeling on the drive back home.  I guess I just needed to whine a bit (which I don't often do), but these slips and downturns really get me down.  At least the school year is almost over!!!!  Thanks for just listening.

Try to take it easy. I did the same thing on field day, but I was protected and still got very sick.
It triggered my bronchitis spell for me.

I am sooooooooooo trying!!! The last two days have been difficult, especially with the malaise and the nausea. It's stout!!!! Thankfully, I have some time off starting this Friday. It's really a blessing in disguise. Thanks for your support.
