I was diagnosed with Lupus then told it may be connective tissue disorder, then Lupus...I wish they would confirm it. I get so tired at work that I have nearly dropped off a couple of times. I get the butterfly rash, my joints are so painful, especially my knees. I burn up so much that I'm afraid to put the fan on at work because people moan they are cold, even though the heating is at full whack, and I end up with such a rash on my fas and dripping with sweat, I feel so embarrassed. I get pains in my fingers and suffer with raynaulds that my fingers get painful at the tips sometimes. I often feel a wreck but can't tell anyone, not even my GP, because I'm suffering with work related stress/depression through bullying and intimidation. I have gone back to work after two months off, but nothing has really changed. This is the first time I have ever said how I partially feel. I did not want to moan about myself to others, but it cry a lot and feel so lost. Sorry.
