Split pea and celery soup. It's the tail end of autumn, and it's starting to get cool here.  By that I mean the temperature is in single digits in the morning when I wake up.  I realise that in England and places like that this morning's six deg C temperatu...

It's Complicated
I received an email from a screenwriter who is writing a script which includes a character with lupus. One of the questions he asked me was: "What can you eat?" Well that's a big question, isn't it? What I can eat has changed several times over the years. N...

Flare Ongoing
My dog, missing out on her walk. I'm still struggling with that flare that came up after my trip to my brother's funeral, but I'm slowly seeing signs of things improving. There are signs of hope.  A couple of times, I've managed my morning walk with my dog....

Just under a fortnight ago, my mother rang with horrible news. My younger brother had been killed in a horrible road accident. I knew that the effort of travelling to the funeral would probably cause a flare, but if I didn't go, the stress and upset would p...

A Bloody Mess
A lot of lupies, including me, take fish oil as part of our drug cocktail.  I don't take quite as much as my rheumatologist wants, because if I throw up if I take the eight to ten capsules a day he recommends. But I do take six 1000mg capsules each day. Fis...

Trying Again - With Help This Time
Once more I'm feeling fairly well, and want to get active. The trouble is, that hasn't ended well for me before. You see, I feel good, so I do things. That goes well, so I do more.  I'm still feeling OK, so I do more.  Then I crash in a heap, and it takes m...
