I think I am getting better. And I am thankful that I feel that way especially since my doctor is not in town for two weeks. In the past when I am in this situation, severe coughing with chest pains and sleepless nights, I would be well after taking antibiotics that are prescribed by my doctor. But since it would be days before I get to see him I decided to do some home remedy first. And since I really am in the mood to eat oranges it was not a problem.
My favorite line from one of my favorite character, Jason Bourne. But most of the time, I tend to forget this line. I think this has been the reason why I suffered a bad flare starting last week. Though I am quite recovered now, I am still coughing from time to time. The husband has ordered me to stop cleaning the house and just rest and even bribed me to give me those orlando vacations that I very much wanted. But of course, I know it’s just a bribe .
Hard to guess.
Here are the symptoms of pneumonia :
* Shortness of breath
* Shaking chills
* Chest pain that fluctuates with breathing (pleurisy)
* Muscle pain
I did not experienced any headache or muscle pain. So that’s seven out of nine.
I have known someone who has diabetes. I have worked with her for eight years. I have seen her struggle and her mood swings. And I know it’s not easy. She is a single lady nearing 60 years of age and somehow diabetes have huge impact on how she has perceived life in general. Because of this disease, she opted not to marry. Her thinking is that she does not want to put the burden in her would be husband. She seems to enjoy what life has to offer but along the way I would listen to her complains about the limitations of having the disease. Especially when it comes to eating. She loves to eat chocolates, fatty foods and even softdrinks. So it’s hard for her to control her intake. Sometimes because of her frustration she would bully me and say that I should not be eating those also because of my lupus. haha.
