Hey my new Lupie friends, I am still new to this, but need to dump. I am currently Flaring, my joints are swelling, especially my knees, legs, feet,and I feel Im pushing my little body, to do more than I am suppose to do, but life deals us more than expected sometimes, and I cannot just quit. But Im under extra Stress, right now and am really struggling to keep up. I have a teenage son with ADHD and he did something careless, that has caused him some serious legal problems, for which my husband and I are having to take financial consequences for. My husbands Son just had a baby, an we are helping them out a lot. My husband feels Im not giving him enough attention, right now, I am falling behind with housework, and cooking meals is rarely done, I am on 2 blood pressure meds, and My Rheumy tells, me that my Lupus ANA (double stranded DNA)shows that my Lupus will probaly only affect my skin, muscles, and joints, but that being on the cellcept, will reduce my chances of organ damage, How confusing is that! I am still taking my son to school daily, and Im trying to go over to help out with my husbands new grandbaby, I guess that makes me a grandma, too!, If I tell my husband Im hurting, and need rest to heal, he gets upset and thinks I don't want to help out! and I feel guilty, But I just can't keep doing all this, and expect my body not to retaliate, I am an exhausted, nervous wreck if anybody understands that! Just needed to vent! thanks!
