Hello lilrosie1,

Sorry to hear that you are really being put through it there :(

What are the things that help you to cope with all this? Have you ever considered getting some kind of professional advice to help you cope with the psychological strain of it all? I don't know where you are based, but maybe you could ask your doctor for ideas or even a referral on this? In the UK, some Expert Patients Programmes are good - they are usually made up of groups of people with chronic conditions and they sometimes have a big emphasis on the psychological side of things? Or maybe just some sort of counselling? x

Hi Lilrosie1,

It may be worth talking to your doctor and seeing if they are able to offer any additional support, such as a referral for counselling or psychotherapy.

Whereabouts do you live? It may help to go along to a local support group meeting to chat with other people who have similar experiences?

Aww poor you. I know it's hard but you have to try and look after yourself. I've had lupus since 2004. I know things gets you down when you have lupus. I manage to carry two beautiful children 😀 God bless you 🙏 hang on on there x
