Yesterday on my Facebook page I re-posted one of those jokey photo's about fatigue with the comment "This is me". A few people have liked it but one friend (of 40yrs!) commented along the lines of we are all tired, get over yourself. She them pm'd me saying I need to sort out my priorities and make more effort to see friends. I have been in bed with a flare for 3 weeks but prior to this I know I have been neglecting people, even my mother, but as well as having me having Lupus my daughter had Glandular fever and recently developed depression/anxiety/panic attacks. I am acutely aware that my daughter and I have retreated from the world recently but was hoping that when we emerged people would still be there (most know I am ill but not all know the diagnosis yet) It is totally out of charecter for this friend but I don't have the emotional reserves to speak to her.... which of course will make things worse
