(no subject)

Tomorrow I start my meds to try and get into remission from Lupus. Lupus is not contagious. It is an autoimmune disorder that affects the whole body. Unlike rhematoid arthritis, there could be a turn for the worse when the vital organs are affected. I am lucky it is only in my joints which makes the arthritis hurt even more. The funny thing with all of this is I am healthier yet sick at the same time. I am in pain but I can keep moving. I am going on Plaquinil again. I am not looking forward to this. I know the side effects. It is not pleasant. I am going to be sick. Also, I go on a powerful antibiotic that will kill all the infection. And I get to go on Immitrex again for migraines as result of the previous meds and an antinausea pill as well as vitamins...i will be taking about 7 pills. Life is going to be fun...
