Two weeks ago I got the first severe Lupus flare in maybe six months. And I still have it. Do you have any idea how brutal a two-week flare is? Holy smokes, it’s been awful.
I’m getting hammered by a regular smorgasbord of Lupus symptoms since this flare started and I’m about out of gas. All I want to do is lie down and not move.
Yesterday, the Lupus rash on my face migrated to both of my eyelids. Swell. Then, to add insult to injury, last night I got a sty the size of a Buick on my left eyelid. Every single time I blink it’s like someone squirted my eye with battery acid. I’m allergic to the antibiotic ointment they prescribe for eye-related infections, so I have to settle for warm compresses and silent weeping.
What a crap-ass couple of weeks, let me tell you.
This morning I realized that I probably should forgo taking the immunosuppressant that is part of my drug cocktail. I called my rheumatologist to check and the nurse ordered me to stop. She got me all nervous with her talk of making the sty worse and causing secondary infections like conjunctivitis.
Normal people probably don’t get worked up over stuff like that, but since I’m allergic to every single class of antibiotics, talk of worsening infections sends me into a blind panic. That’s the kinda stuff that lands me in the hospital.
So, long story short (too late), I am very unwell and have been for days. But now that my eye has a Buick parked on it, the idea of staring at my computer screen makes me bristle. So this is it for me today. I’m done. I need to lie down with a warm compress over the Buick on my eyelid.
But before I go, here’s Paul Joseph Watson’s latest video.
It is excellent.
