you are not lazy!! I have worked hard all my life, I grew up in the mountains in Idaho so it was a natural move for me to follow my brothers into the logging world, after three years of that I felt there was no future in it so I got into working on power lines which I have done for the last 25 years, I like my job and the work, yea it can get you down especially during the flares, I do worry some times that people think I am lazy however I have been reassured at work that nobody thinks that I am lazy, I am asked a lot of questions about lupus and I answer, I am blessed that every body at work understands for the most part what I am going thru and most all have offered help if I need it. they have seen how I look and feel during a flare and I try to go to work. I tell my wife that I used to be a stud, I have always been in good shape until now, enough about me, just remember, it's the lupus not you, I know how you feel. keep your chin up and don't let lupus or anybody get you down, its not your fault. God bless and best wishes.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort wich we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3
