Friday, Dec 18: Rest day

Today, I rested. And after a very emotional and draining Thursday night, I needed the rest.

Despite how diligently I have been about taking my medicine, and despite my excessive slathering of Aquaphor on my face, I am still getting sores on my face. That's one of the less attractive sides of lupus--all of the disgusting sores around the mouth and nose. (The lupus foundation has a pretty good page about how lupus can affect the skin.)

I took some photos of my face, and will share and post them once I get up the nerve to do so. I'm still really bothered by how these lupus sores make me look, so I will feel very vulnerable posting the pictures.
