I have been living with Lupus for 23 years and by the grace of God, I have kept my sanity. This year has been he'll but I stand on my faith the God will see me through. I am not working nor have medical coverage. Applied for disability and its like pulling teeth. Due to me pending Disability, I can't obtain health coverage, so I must risk living w/o proper medical attention. My doctor wants to put me on a new drug due to my Lupus being so at five. Lupus needs more exposure of the health risks and complications that Lupus has. I need medical help and I need specialist, not regular physician. I’ve never bad to ask anyone for assistance or dependents or any state programs until now. I paid my taxes and gave back to organizations to help others but I can't receive any help. This is discouraging and had me having thoughts of ending my life. I'm so tired of hurting, not holding up to daily commitments, tired all the time and tired of faking when I'm in pain. Creams and taking multiple pills in hopes that the drugs will work gets over whelming.
