? .. lupus and colds /virus's

This may be a dumb question..but how does someone with lupus react to colds and virus's? Because our immune system is overactive,will it knock out the cold faster ? Or because our immune systems ARE overactive wil it be able to recognize the virus and have enough "juice" to knock it out. Or will the body respond the same way it did before the lupus? I'm newly diagnosed and sick with a cold/flu thing right now. Should I be worried?

thanks ,Kate
