  • you need to contact your GP if you are feeling like this. I am sure people on this site can and will offer support but I THINK you need professional help.. I THINK fear of the unknown is the worst thing.. you need support and with a diagnosis of some kind you will no more were you stand

    Take care x

  • Acceptance is the key to emotional well being. You are ill and you cannot fight it head-on. You will get your life back and you will be a happy creative and productive person. But some days all you can do is let it all wash over you, wait it out and pick up the threads later.

  • wise words from Thaddeus. The trying to intellectualise, to reason things out will cause even more problems for you. The medical profession do not know all the answers. The one thing you have to have is belief in yourself, you know your own body so if there is something wrong you have to find the energy to fight almost for a diagnosis and treatment. Get as many family and friends on your side as you can - talk about your problems, you'll need their help and strength. Rest on the bad days, do more on the better ones. I think we all feel like hyperchondriacs at times - which we're not. It can be a long road to diagnosis and the correct treatment. Hugs xxx

  • Thank you Thaddeus and Guildford for you very wise words and support. i have been to my gp who informs me its not lupus having been told by my dermatologist that it is ??not sure what or who to believe but came away with some mood stabilisers for good measure i think only people on here have a true understanding of how we all feel thanks again for you advice xxx
