Exhausted and defeated

Tonight we are supposed to be going to dinner for my fiance's and mother in laws birthday and I literally can not get the energy to get off the couch. I FINALLY got out of bed. I haven't felt this defeated in so long and I don't even have my diagnosis yet. Appointment is on the 28th of this month for the rheumatologist. All my symptoms point to lupus. Anyone have any healthy energy suggestions?

  1. oh no Im sorry that your energy was so low. Sometimes it can really take a toll on you and all you can do is rest. Other times getting up and moving helps. You have to really get to know your body and what works to get your energy back up. Certain foods like Bananas, yogurt and beans can also bring on energy. When you meet with your doctor definitely ask how he/she suggests increasing energy. I'm sending you gentle hugs and positive energy for a conclusive visit . ~Racquel~ team member
