Last Friday, my rheumatologist put me on a pretty powerful Lupus medication. Before I left the appointment, she warned me in no uncertain terms that I would be in for some brutal side effects for the first few weeks until my body got used to the meds.

Oy gevalt. She wasn’t kidding.

I apologize that I have not been posting much over the last few days, but by about noon, I’m a wreck. I can barely see to read, let alone write. I have to walk with a cane to keep from falling on my face. And my appetite apparently took a long trip without me.

On the plus side, after four months of this medication, I should be experiencing fewer flares. Woo hoo! I’d do a happy dance about that, but I’d probably end up on the floor with my face in the dog bowl.

Now I understand the old saying the treatment is worse than the disease.

Any old how. As this is probably my last post of the day, I thought I would treat you to a brand new Dianny Movie Poster.

    So sorry you are ill from your meds. Lupus can be so nasty—-praying that the side effects will quickly subside and that your health will be better than ever. I greatly appreciate your many skills. So blessed to have you on the conservative side. Love to you, Dianny!

    For a woman who is suffering from such a debilitating disease, I commend you on your kick-ass graphic. Your readers greatly appreciate all you do in standing guard over liberty.

    Take care. You are in our prayers.
