Had a total melt down on Saturday. Anxiety became so overwhelming that I couldn't stop thinking on how I could end my life. I couldn't escape those thoughts. I did the right thing and told my husband. Rang the crisis line and an initial response team from the psychiatric dept at local hospital were in my house within 20 minutes. They have came every day to see me. Today I go for my first session of CBT. I'm nervous about going outside but I'm going to do it.
Is this common with lupus?? I was diagnosed in August and it's all relatively new to me.
Should I take longer off work til I overcome the anxiety or should I go back Sunday and get back in a routine?
