Hey Dano first and foremost I would like to say you are a great spouse for trying to help your wife through her trying time. For I to have lupus along with a mental illness. It is not an easy thing to go through. Alot of times we are in such a battle to be who we were that the mental thing just seems like a lupus thing and makes it hard to address. I am sorry I just had a lost moment mi d moving faster than my fi gers but I hope you understand what I was trying to get at.View Thread

Hello new friends I'm new to this. Was recently diagnosed with lupus a week ago. Went and had blood drawn today 2 see 2 what degree. With a nonsupportive husband a 10yrd and a 15yr old I feel so lost and lonely. As I try to work everyday as a cook in a childcare facility it grows harder everyday to get out of bed as if nothing is wrong. Can't lose my job who will care for me an my 2 girls? So much to consider need food for thought.View Thread
