Once again, the day after a good day, a weekend to boot, and I’m down for the count. I woke with a headache, but at least had Sine Off to take this time. It did help ease the pain. I wasn’t up long when I realized it was going to be a day of on and off the couch battling nausea and no energy. I had so much I wanted to do today. I got little of it done.
That’s the way with lupus. You never know what kind of day you are going to have and making plans is almost futile. You can now see why friends get frustrated. They invite you out or over or whatever and more often than not you don’t show up. It’s not that you don’t want to go. It’s not even that you don’t try to go. It’s that you are not able to go.
If I had been forced to go somewhere today, I could have forced myself to and I would have been miserable the entire time. The people around me would probably been miserable too. So instead, I stayed on the couch, suffering from the nausea, but knowing that things will get better. Tomorrow will be another day and perhaps I will be feeling better.
Until tomorrow – I wish you enough
