Lupus has wrecked my career even before I started working. I can't even get proper education because I am unfit for school these days...

All I can think of is, " Does this mean that I might not be able to work with blinding pain, heavily mediated, falling asleep at the wheel and stuff like ORGAN FAILURE?" Now how am I supposed to get through this day with this study raining on my parade? Ahahahahaha...Is this sarcasm? I was going to work on this while home sick from work!

I suppose they felt the need for this waste of time survey. They could have better spent their time and money on other research. But as one of the few who can still work at my age; I feel their time should have been better spent. I am so beaten down by lupus that I've lost my sarcastic edge- used to be really good at it
Of well

Oh Nonna I know that you will rebound and it will come back. Today I have no strength to be sarcastic either, so we will have to rely on someone else. Okay who is able to be humorous and sarcastic today as Nonna and I are taking a rest? We are pooped out.

Love you Nonna. Fingers are crossed that things get better soon

(You haven't lost your ability to play Words with Friends though nor the ability to beat me from time to time!)
