So what brings me to this great forum is the fact i'm at mt whits end and can't be ignoring my condition any more. My memory is getting worse and my life isn't great at the moment.
Although it's just fatigue, joint acheyness and discoid rashes on my chest and back. I'm not dealing with general life very well. Since being diagnosed with lupus 5 years ago I have lost a lot of so called friends and many jobs and have had several melt downs. Currently signed off work to and I think I've lost my job any ways, it was only a job for the Christmas period. I feel disappointed though.
Ever get that feeling that Lupus just wants to take over even though you don't want it to and your doing much as you can to help it? I wondering if my circle of bad decisions and denial will stop.
So this is the end of 2011 very soon, I am 25 and I live with my parents, in debt and just about sane. I am now getting into to gear trying to get a London based specialist and trying to become a Freelance Illustrator/ Graphic Designer to eliminate some stress and bring more flexibility.
I guess I've always wondered how other people cope with Lupus and life?
