So sorry for the lack of updates. I have been so busy with school and I have also been having some lupus-related problems. I finally got some pain medication (Mobic) on Wednesday, increased it on Friday and have to call the doctor tomorrow to tell her how I am doing. If it is not better then I have to start the dreaded prednisone, which is another post all by itself. I also have an appointment to see about this cough I have been having on Tuesday with my primary care doctor.

Well, health care reform has happened, and I am thrilled. The preexisting conditions clause does not come into effect until 2014, but it gives me hope for the future.

Tomorrow I pick my classes for the fall. I will be taking my first ever 8am class and I will have no class on Friday. I'm worried about 8am, but it is only two days a week, so I think I will be OK. Of course I will be working when I don't have class. I also registered for two online summer classes.

That's all for now. I worked my 8 hour shift today and it has taken a bigger toll on me than usual. I came to my apartment and slept for a while, but I have a lot of work to get done. So I should get started on that.

I hope everyone has a good week!

Wow. School and a job, I give you massive props! I took an 8am class in college, I usually made it to class with my pjs and a baseball cap on. Hope the Mobic will work for you, I've never had any sucess with it but thats why it Lupus and everyone is different.
Wishing you a less-painful week!

Hi Karen!

I have always avoided 8am. Luckily the class isn't too far away from my apartment. Sometimes it can take me 20-25 minutes to get to class. The Mobic is working decently well. Thanks for writing!
