Any day can be unpredictable when you’re dealing with an autoimmune disease, but some are worse than others. My guess is that today’s problems are worse because of my meds, but it could be the conditions themselves, or the weather, or just randomness. Who knows? I sure don’t!
A dog accidentally scratched me the other day while we were played. It left a mark, but didn’t break the skin or anything. The next day, there was a small bruise. Today there are 5 bruises, some large, and they’re blue and sensitive to touch!
Sunday night I got what I thought were 3 mosquito bites. The next day there were at least twice as many. Today there are even more! Maybe they aren’t mosquito bites after all? Maybe my body is telling me something?
And then last night pain set in, along with some swelling. Great. It hasn’t gone away yet.
I was doing ok a few days ago, and now my body is going haywire. I don’t know what caused it. I don’t know when it will go away. In the meantime, I’m treating myself to a night of tv and unproductive web surfing. Productivity can wait until I’m feeling better. Tonight is about relaxing.
