Hi, I'm still unsure about how I feel about having Lupus, sometimes it's not really an issue, but then when I start to feel the pain or get reminded of my limitations then I get sad and angry. I've started to realise that my family and friends either 'forget' that I have this unpredictable disease or when people ask me how I am, they visibly look bored or disbelieving when I tell them what's been going on lately. It's frustrating as I don't know whether to lie and give a standard "ok thanks" answer or to tell the truth about how I'm feeling or what I'm going through. I know I need to pick and choose the right people to be honest with but I still feel like my close friends still don't understand me. Anyone having similar issues?
