This morning, I woke up feeling pretty awful. Just about all of the joints in my hands and feet were swollen and my back felt like it hand no bend in it at all. I was exhausted but had slept through the night. I wasn’t sure that I was going to make it into work today.
Then my best friend sent me a message asking for the contact info of my rhuematologist. A friend of hers has a friend who is also fighting lupus and by the description of things, her battle is much tougher than mine. Her organs have become involved in her disease and it sounds pretty serious.
At that moment in time, I said a quick “thank you”, and rolled over for a little more sleep before I started my day.
