I know I haven't been much of a participant these last few months. I have been reading your threads though and I swear like 90% of them I can relate to. Lately I haven't felt like talking about my lupus. I'm just so tired of feeling sick and tired. My depression is in check and I still see my therapist.
Back in January I asked you all about the pain with my scalp and I got a lot of great responses, for which I am greatful. Well, the pain is gone but now I am losing my hair! :*( I know it sounds vain but I have always had really thick, shiny hair and now it's coming out fast. And I can't stand it! How many more things does this stupid disease get to take away from me? I mean I can't work, and because my disability hasn't gone through I can't help to provide for my family, I can't do a ton of the stuff I used to like remodeling, and cross stitiching as any repetitive motion is trouble for me. I can't even cry because when I do, because of the Sjogren's, my eyes swell up for hours.
I thought I was doing ok dealing with this whole thing but I think the hair loss was the last straw. Do you know what I mean? It is so unfair! Just one big old pity party for me! Lol!
Thank you for letting me vent. I wish I could say that I feel better after doing it but I am still bummed. I will try to participate more as it is so nice to have friends that know where you are coming from and I could definitely use them. I lost a lot of them when I got sick.
