I was told by a Dr. about 2 and half to 3 years ago that I had Lupus and I would be lucky to live 5 to 7 years more. I have three young children. It was devastating to hear and the first time I had ever even really talked to a Dr. about what could be wrong with me. I kind put my running shoes on and left that dr. I looked into alternative treatments never really mentioning Lupus. Anyhow I got worse and worse until I couldn't even get out of bed. I had to get help. Every Dr. Had the same answer minus the death sentence Thank God. I started Plaquenil in November. This has changed my life and everything I feel guilty for not being able to do things I used to at the pace I used to for being cranky for feeling like I'm not a good enough wife and mother, that I can't keep up. I'm scared. I feel like since I don't look sick I shouldn't feel like I do. Does this get any better? Am I just feeling sorry for myself? Please be honest with me. Thank you all for help. So happy to have found this site.
