I moved 6 weeks ago to a new area to live at my boyfriends house, I'm REALLY struggling at the moment, still don't know the area enough to get about, still not got a job (therefore no £), find the benefit system a waste of time in the past & struggle to cope with all the paperwork anyway, so not claiming (even if i tried, i have no £ to get to jobseekers appts.
I've no doctor yet (or dentist), no real friends nearby, no mobile credit to chat with friends. My fella is going through an access battle with his ex over their 1yr old child, plus his bankruptcy, my 71 yr old dad got VERY badly beaten up (he's a pacifist!) & my younger brother has bi-polar & tried to commit suicide & I guess all of this is causing me more stress, along with my Lupus! I'm getting to the end of my tether & need some support, recently I've not had the strength to carry on, suffer insomnia, bad headaches & been getting bad pains, in the midst of Lupus flares & my memory deteriorating, along with any confidence of getting a job...worried I won't be capable to do jobs like I used to (my spelling much worse & struggle with figures too-almost like dyslexia, plus the fatigue etc).
I don't like taking conventional medicines, but the strongest corticosteroid creams not working so well now on my DLE (the last Dr before i moved said I'd have to go on immune suppressant pills if/when the cream stopped working). I need help & don't know where to turn....? (don't want to maybe 'burden' my fella with it all, as he's enough on his plate & doesn't understand Lupus). I'm usually a happy go lucky person (well, the last few years), but I can't seem to muster up the energy to 'pick myself up' in any way.
