Hello all, I have been lurking for awhile and don't post much, although I love the humor posts they cheer me up when i am having a bad day. I have a question for everyone, How do you handle "normal" sickness with your autoimmune diseases? I am currently struggling with what started as a sinus cold and then moved into bronchitis (caught it before it became pneumonia) and am on antibiotics and steroids on top of all the other meds I take. I am supposed to be feeling better by now at least somewhat but am just exhausted and still having difficulties breathing , both because apparently i also have asthma and because the mucous chokes me. Everything is taking more spoons than I have. I can't take any more time off work, I can't afford to. Tips?
