I wonder if going back to work is causing your flare. My doctor once told me that flares can be brought on by life stressors. Now these things that cause stress are not all bad. I went through the list and there were things like planning a vacation, having a baby and anything work related. Your body is probably getting very excited and maybe even a little nervous and this may be triggering it I think it is great you are going back and I can not wait to here all about your first week let the doc know about all this and maybe, just for now, you may need your meds adjusted to help you get through this time I am here if you need to talk about anything
As I grow to understand life less and less,
I learn to love it more and more.
