Traveling with Lupus

If you have systemic lupus, you know how it feels to travel. It is HARD! Traveled 12 hours up and 14 back. Went up to KY Wednesday morning and came back Saturday. Pain is a horrible side effect of suffering when you want to go somewhere you love so much. One of the worst side affects is swelling. Going up, swelling went down quickly. Coming back, took a couple of days. For those of you who suffer from Systemic lupus, this post is for you. ODD that it may be, you will understand.



If you've ever felt the misery of this horrible disease, you'll know how bad the pain is inside. When the swelling involves your entire body, misery spreads throughout. Walking on water balloons is the only way I can describe the sensation. Of course when I go to the doctor on Monday, the swelling will be gone.
