Yep, woke up this morning and my eyes were sealed shut with stuff. Yuck. and have almost no voice. this will be my first experience with a cold and having autoimmune disorders. I emailed my doctor to know if I could take something for the aches and pains. I know I have to be careful as to what I can take since I am taking prednisone and Immuran. It's a bummer as I just don't have my normal energy. Everything seems like a chore. I know I didn't get this though from the grandkids as it would be too soon. I think I got it from the man next to me on the airplane as he was coughing an sneezing. I told my DH that I think I will go to the pharmacy and buy a mask to wear when I fly so that I don't breath in germs. It's a catch 22 situation. I have to be on the immune suppressant drugs to keep my immune system from attacking me but that makes me more susceptible to germs and stuff. So I do have to be careful. Oh well will see how this goes. I just feel bummed that I don't have as much energy to play with the grandkids.
And today I am supposed to hook up with 4 girlfriends that I went all through school with from elementary to high school and their mothers who live where my mother lives. I will get it together and go but might not stay for the part where we will go out to dinner. There is cocktail party first and then we are walking to an Italian place. I can't have gluten so not my favorite place to go. Anyway I am going to play it by ear and perhaps leave before the dinner....also not excited about driving in the dark. But we will see how it goes.
I hope you all are doing terrific today. I know what I have is temporary. I will survive but praying that I won't have a flare up and have to go on IV.
Have a great day.
