I am off work ill today... woke up with a sore throat and swollen glands with could be the start of a Lupus flare. My joints are painful and my brain fogged. However, I have just started Mycophenalate so it could be a reaction to that. Being mindful of compromised immunity I took my sore throat to the Doc who thinks it is a virus but gave me a course of antibiotics as standby. My last blood results were bad Haemoglobin 10 and Iron 3 so I am anaemic and waiting to be admitted for an iron infusion. I am also very stressed at the moment as my daughter is ill as well. Thing is, why do I keep trying to justify feeling ill and trying to categorise which problem is making me ill. Why can't I just feel ill and accept it instead of thinking have I done anything to make myself ill? Does everyone do the blaming, justifying and rationalising thing like this?
