Does lupus number my outside naturist days?

I know, this is quite a shocking question to ask, but it’s definitely one that’s been keeping my mind occupied over the last few days.

What the hell am I talking about?

Canis Lupus

Valid question. The short answer: Lupus. You may think I am talking about a wolf.

No. That is Canis Lupus, an entirely different animal. Literally! 😉

According to the Mayo Clinic,

Lupus is a systemic autoimmune disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems — including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs.

So far I’m still alive, not to worry, and I’m enjoying it as much as I can. Working from home is a naturist’s blessing!

What my problem might be…

Sunlight

This here thing to the left, however, is listed as one of the possible inducers of lupus. Sunlight. Some people get their (lupus) kicks on Route 66, but some just seem to need sunlight for that. Photo-sensitivity, as the simple word for that goes.

I don’t know if I fall in that category. I actually have no clue what does trigger it for me, but I can tell you it’s annoying.

It’s itching like mad. In a way you don’t wish on anyone else. Reading what misery this stuff can bring to a person, I get away with the light version, I think.

The rotten thing about this is, as I said, that I don’t know what triggers this with me. To be on the safe side, I’ll avoid sunlight for a while. Let’s see if that does anything. If nothing changes, then it’s probably not sunlight that affects me. I really hope it’s not that – or chocolate.

And for those who made it this far and wonder what the Route 66 reference was all about:

Great weather and lockdown, and still it’s good

I guess you all know it. The ‘why’ is COVID-19, Corona, pandemic, all those words and some more.

Sunlight

Here in the Netherlands, it feels like summer’s gone crazy. Well, spring at least. Temperatures that are just too good to be true (and they are!). Fabulous weather to visit nude beaches, nude parks, nude anything.

And we’re asked to stay home.

The strange thing about this is that I hope everyone does stay at home. Naturist or not, it’s not smart to go out and mingle while you can bring home a nasty surprise and slap that onto everyone in the house.

So how is this good, I hear you ask.

For one, we are inside this shitty situation and staying home is the only way to get out of it. It’s weird but true. If you have to go out, keep a distance of 1 alligator or so, that should be safe. And no, having to go to your favourite nude beach is not a need to go outside unless you’re the warden of the area and something untoward is going on there.

We’re in this together, nude and clothes, and only together we can get out of it.

If we do this the right way, life will be good again. Being nude outside will be possible again. And until then, don’t get caught with your pants down. (You know what I mean and if you don’t, let me know and I’ll explain it.)

Stay safe, everyone. Keep your distance and use the tools technology offers us to stay in touch without touching.
