I am fighting another cold while they are currently testing me for Lupus. They know I have at least 1 AI Disease but now they're testing to see what all I have. I get sick way too often. I am constantly fighting one thing or another it seems like and my pain gets 10 times worse when I get sick. I am very discouraged and just grasping to hold on during this crazy ride.
I struggle constantly with widespread pain, severe anxiety, and severe insomnia.
Does everyone struggling with these diseases ha e issues with getting sick? How do I get that under control better? Does anyone have any tips? Hey just stop in and say hey ... Whatever.
I am struggling very much with these diagnosis that depression is very prevalent as well right now. I just didn't want to keep living in this much pain and being told that I'll never get better hit me a lot harder than I thought it would.
My husband and 2 of my sisters are incredibly supportive and understanding. However, my children and the rest of my family and friends do not understand and I have been consistently accused of being a drug addict, a hypochondriac, a med seeker, a complete wimp, and all the other ones that come with this territory. I need to make some friends who do understand and help me feel less like I'm totally worthless now.
