Long distance, remote adventures are tough. They are made immensely more challenging when living with an autoimmune illness.
People express their bafflement that I can tackle a multi-month paddling trip and still claim to struggle with lupus but there are many ways I have learned over the years to cope with my illness.
One of the most effective strategies is my ability to nap wherever I happen to be if I feel inclined. And outdoor adventures allow me to partake in one whenever I want and for as long as I want (something that work places tend to frown upon).
Since lupus sauntered into my life napping has become one of my favourite pastimes.
