    Thank you for all the information about symptoms, medications and treatment options for lupus (All types of autoimmune disorders).
    It is extremely reassuring to realize that I am not alone, that someone DOES understand the daily struggle. Even spouses who are supportive often still do not grasp the true depth of the fatigue and pain of just getting through the day.
    My husband tries to understand, i know i am lucky and blessed to have him. However, sometimes when i comment about a struggle he just poo- poo’s me, like “oh, it’s not as hard as you think just try harder”. He doesn’t “get” that i give 150% EVERYDAY. Not just the days i happen to mention i am struggling. EVERYDAY.
    So knowing there are others who DO “Get it” really helps mentally. I am not crazy.
    I fear that my grandchildren will only remember me as the crazy, sick grama who was always complaining about pain and being tired.
    I used to be the “Fun” grama, trips to the beach, parks, Disneyland. That changed almost overnight after a major car accident. I had symptoms for many years prior to this car accident however, i had managed them without medications for 10 years. It was like someone turned on the light switch and i haven’t been able to turn it off… for the last 15 years. Not sure if the stress, the medications for the broken bones, age or what set of the major flair but it has been overwhelming ever since.
    I mourn the freedom of being pain and fatigue free.
    I mourn the loss of being able to physically and mentally doing what i was capable of doing prior to that dreadful day.
    Thank you for listening, for caring. I hope you know what a blesding you give to other warriors daily. Through the information, advise, listening and support that your site provides for us.
    Bless you and stay strong warrior!!
