when it rains it pours

niaaaxx profile image

i was diagnosed bipolar II in april and was prescribed limictal i took it for a week and was obviously showing signs of something bad but i am stubborn and kept taking meds until i broke out in rash which turned out to be an allergic reaction. my mom took me to the hospital , i was in syracuse hospital for a week before being diagnosed with lupus. at first i was just sooo grateful to know what was wrong with me, and to start on the path of treatment. anxiety plays a huge part in my day to day life. ive done alot of work on acceptance . i am also in recovery from drugs and alchohal i have a sponsor and attend AA meetings as much as i can. i am 26 year old native american woman. i guess i am just looking for friends who can relate to me and share. i feel alone sometimes or unique and i need to remind myself im not and that everything happens for a reason. my creator loves me so why dont i love myself?
