Hi guys Im new to this online community but need some help. I got diagnosed with Lupus a year ago and found i could cope pretty well as it wasnt ipacting me so much. Ive now moved area and changed hospitals which means having to change specialist.
They put me onto new medication and I am in constant pain. Im ok for a few days and can get really bad flare ups lasting 2-4 days. Ive had to quit working and it also affected my longterm relationship. I have tried to get my partner to understand but he just thinks im faking it as i look fine on the outside and having already lived with it for a year and having held down a job he just thinks im being lazy.
Please help Im at the end of my tether as now my home life has become a source of stress as he broke up with me but due to circumstances we still live together. The stress is making things worse too and I dont know what to do.
I have noone else to turn to having no family here as I came a very long time ago with my mother who sadly passed away 7 years ago.
The depression is really taking its toll too and friends are quite far away after having moved. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
