Good Sunday Morning Y'all!

This cold weather is taking a toll on me! Due to lupus every joint and mussel in my body hurts this morning!

The Awful headache to go with it!

Have you ever heard it even hurts to blink your eyes, well that is me this morning!

Oh, and I can not get warm, sitting close to the fireplace with a cup of coffee!

Wishing Everyone A Good,Safe, & Blessed Day!

Don't forget to attend the church of your choice today!

Hi Tiras....i feel your pain. I am also having a hard time staying warm. I had to get groceries and the store was cold and my finger tips turned white....my Raynaud's seems to be getting worse. I even kept my gloves on inside the store...didn't help. Hope your headache gets better....they wear me out! Our temperature at night here has been around 8 or 9 at night. Brrrr! Love your fireplace.

I hope you get some relief soon also!

I'm in Alabama and we have been in the low teens, we have had the coldest weather here, in over 5 years!

If they is not enough problems, I have to go barefoot due to lupus skin issues on my feet especially my right foot!

Yes, the doctors say it is a combination of lupus and medication. It is not only my feet, it is all of my skin. I can literally tear my skin with my fingernail, and then it will bleed like crazy for a few minutes. Wash the blood off and you can barely see a scratch!?

On my.....so sorry that you have to deal with that. Does it cause blisters elsewhere as well? My skin is very sensitive too....so many rashes!!

Yes, I can and have gotten rashes/blisters from head to toe and everywhere in between. Even in unmentionable areas, if you get my drift?

Yes..I do know what you mean. I have experienced the same. It was quite an experience for me...in the unmentionable area! I was diagnosed with lupus and not long after experiencing some devaststing stress those blisters appeared! I found s very good doctor who treated me and told me it was lupus related. Thank you for sharing that with me...I dont feel so alone now.

Yep, the cold has been brutal for me too. My joints are not enjoying it at all! Not being able to stay warm has become one of my issues this winter. My body temp is impossible to control. It will be 80+ degrees in my house and everyone else is running around at night in shorts and I'm curled in a ball dressed in layers and covered w blankets. It's ridiculous!

However, I'm super sun sensitive so I've gotten a break from that since it's winter :)

I am just getting out of bed, after 2 days in it. I feel about the same as you describe. The thing is, I am scheduled for surgery tomorrow(tuesday)....I am doing all that I can to be well enough to not be canceled ..... BTW, Tiras, Does you wife also have an AI disease..Somehow I got that impression..Mt husband had Sjogren's but he is mildly bothered by it....I think though that a lot of his symptoms he complains about IS Sjogrens...He hasn't been to a Rheumy in about 10 years...Hope You are feeling better today

My wife has severe arthritis, thyroid is producing nothing, B12 and vitamin D is almost nonexistent. She has just recently started taking medication for all of these issues.

Hope all turns out well for you!
