Haven’t been sleeping well again. Over did it yesterday at work. Have to go in today with whole body aches. Head to toes hurt so bad. It’s getting harder and harder to hide the pain from my face at work. I’m so tired of people asking me if I’m ok. I wanna say no but I smile and say ya I’m fine. They won’t understand. Some times all I want to do is say no I’m not ok I have lupus and I’m in constant pain. Not even my boyfriend understand how much I hurt. I just want to cry all day.

Hi, Beck. Sorry you had a bad few days here. I hope things start to turn around soon. If you haven’t tried mindfulness, it’s worth considering. I find it helps me deal with breakthrough pain very effectively. Hugs.
