Under Attack

Apparently, it may not be the close proximity of the reading lamp that’s causing those ugly red welts on my left forearm.

Apparently, I may be on the verge of a stress-induced lupus flare. I just hope this is not a repeat of the 1997 flare when I ended up with shooting pains in my lungs each time I tried to take a deep breath but was too busy at work to go and see the doctor, and when I finally did, an X-ray of my lungs showed lesions that indicated pleurisy. The lesions healed on their own – miracle from God surely, but one I do not wish repeated again.
