Lupus (SLE) is a funny thing. At least in my experience, I get these waves of feeling a bit better… so I try to do lots of things that I couldn’t do when I was ‘down”… and inevitably end up doing too much…. which leads me to several days of ‘down’… which starts the cycle again. eash.
Yesterday, either because of an “up” day… or because of a manic-like episode now that I am on steroids… I did alot. I cleaned the stove/ oven, washed the kitchen floor, washed all the dishes, did laundry, & vacuumed. I gathered the trash and the recycling. I watered and fiddled with the plants on the balcony. Took care of all my on-line stuff/ mail/ blog/ IG/ etc. I made a fantastic salad for lunch today, and an amazing pot roast for dinner. I also cooked up brats with peppers/ onions/garlic etc to add to the salad for tomorrow (so I don't have to cook tomorrow)..... and of course BACON... that I can add to .. well ./ anything. I did sit back then and watch some pretty forgettable shows on TV…. and tried to sack out… but my brain kept me up til almost 4am. I woke at 10am… putzed around for a couple hours, and realizing I was just being a zombie…. went back to bed. I just woke up. yep. On the plus side….. thanks to yesterday… I really didn’t have to cook or clean today at all.
