I've recently been diagnosed with Lupus, Addison's, and a slew of other issues, but I suspected lupus for a long time. I've had periods of time, (I guess the flares) where I felt really bad, and mentally incapable to do anything. I've managed to get through it, but this last one was so bad, that I'm not sure I could survive another episode as severe as it was. I have absolutely no support, and fear it happening again. the pain and fatigue, as bad as it was, is nothing to the mental aspect I experienced. It was absolutely horrible. I don't know what I could say to help anyone, as I'm still reeling from all of this. I'd help in any way if I could or can. I don't know where to get support. sorry for the re post. didn't intend to post anonymously.View Thread
