    Anyway, I've got a pretty good track record for not getting sick beyond colds but this is balanced out with constant allergies. Bluurgh.

    I have the best (worst) dreams when I am sick.

    Goodness the brain can be a messed up thing under the right conditions.

    I don't think lupus is a thing you 'had'. More of a you 'have'. Or don't. Feel lucky if you don't.

    I had allergy issues for the first two weeks of this month. Just a thick cloud of pollen for days on end.

    Lupus erythematosus is a name given to a collection of autoimmune diseases, in which the human immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissues.[1] Symptoms of these diseases can affect many different body systems, including joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, heart, and lungs.

    From a friend who has lupus, it's really just tons and tons of pain.

    I used to have bad seasonal allergies as a kid, but thankfully I grew out of them and into just mild seasonal allergies.

    The worst part of the ones I had as a kid though is that it always started up around mid-March. My birthday is also around mid-March. So that sucked.

    I started taking allergy medicine when the pollen really kicked off around here. Even so it hit me real bad when I went outside and swept a bunch of pollen off the patio furniture.

    God dang pollen count of over 8000 ppm for a couple days straight

    Okay lupus sounds pretty awful. Not least because it's treated with steroids and my understanding of them is they absolutely suck to be on.

    Inevitably like once or twice somebody has Lupus on that show.

    My Grandmother had lupus, and my mom and uncle have it now. Apparently there is a genetic predisposition to it in our family.

    Watching people go through a lupus flare-up is pretty freaking awful. My mom has described it as simultaneously hurting when you stay still and hurting when you move. Just basically constant pain-- from shifting around, from touching things or contact in general.

    The steroids and painkillers all don't seem to do that great of a job too. Changes in personality, chance for addiction (my grandmother was an anesthesiologist who lost her doctor's license because she was doping up, possibly because of the intense pain from lupus), and the general ominous feeling that even though you aren't in pain, something very very bad is happening to your body.

    That I will one day develop lupus is a super huge fear for me. Especially because there really isn't much I can do about it besides 'avoid stress'.

    I had a fever for only like three days

    but my cough has lasted over 2 weeks and it is so annoying

  • VeldrinVeldrin Sham bam bamina Registered User regular
    My brother-in-law has lupus.

    I'm not sure of the details, but somehow it has ended up causing problems with his digestive system bacteria due to the diet that he had to go on, so he's missing important gut flora.

    He had to go for a a few sessions of getting the bacteria back into his system, in what he aptly referred to as "poo-transplants".

    Which is hilarious but so awful.

    Also preeettyyy sure I am lactose intolerant. Considering drinking milk and eating cereal with a bunch of milk gives me stomach aches and I'm a constantly very gassy person. Also some other intestinal stuff that is probably just because I eat like shit.

    But the milk probably isn't helping any... gonna.. gonna try not eating cheese or milk for a while which really sucks

    because god dang if deli meats and cheeses on crackers isn't the food of the gods

    Last Friday my allergies kicked in something fierce, bad enough that I went straight into a pretty nasty head cold. I think it's starting to pass, and should be gone by mid-week, but holy shit it sucks to have your nose turn into a mucus faucet that will not shut off

    I have all the snots, super gross

    Also people were cracking jokes earlier but some doctors do prescribe antibiotics when you have a virus because your weakened immune system can make you vulnerable to secondary bacterial infections

    It's not always a good idea but it's not crazypants either

  • ArtreusArtreus I'm a wizard And that looks fucked upRegistered User regular
    ahah oh man I just

    really hope taking allergy medicine long term is gonna cure me of this thing where I get lots of junk in my throat all the time forever. Like if I leave it long enough I just can't breathe. So I have to do that really gross cough thing where you bring it up. all the time

    I am the grossest
