Another Lupus Flare

Felt very fatigued last week with aches and pains all over my body. I still carried on doing the things I usually do such as going to the toning suite for gently exercise.

The weekend started with diarrhoea but thank God it did not last for more than a day.

More aches and pains but I know it is only a flare up of the lupus symptoms. So I am ignoring them and just learning to know my limitations as to what I can and cannot do at these times.

Monday and the dreaded mouth ulcers are back. This time inside my lower lip which is making it difficult to have hot drinks or even eat anything hot.

Went to see the Rheumatologist today and forgot to tell him about the mouth ulcers and blood blisters I keep getting. I think the mention of more chemotherapy caused me to have temporary brain freeze. Any I decline the offer of more chemo for the present. If my breathing worsens during the next four months then I will have no choice but to have more chemo (it has helped with my breathing as I really though I was going to need lung transplant or oxygen).

I am trusting God for my healing and His help each day. He has promised never to leave me so no matter what or how I feel He is still there in charge.
