I kind of have a dumb question. But bear with me, I was just diagnosed at the end of July and am still fairly new at this.

Anyway, my son started kindergarten this year and has already brought home several cold/flu illnesses. I seem to catch them a lot easier and a lot more violent than I ever did before being diagnosed with SLE. Is it because of the SLE that I am catching these illnesses the way I am? I just wondered if one had any bearing on the other. Thanks.
