I was dx with lupus almost 9 years ago and have had my share of ups and downs. I have a wonderful fiance, 2 fabulous children, and a very supportive family. Even though I have all that along with amazing doctors, I still feel alone. I get so depressed sometimes that I just break down and cry and honestly don't know why. I feel like the disease controls everything about me and my life and like there is nothing I can do to help it. I get frustrated and lose my temper so easily...which I think is from the Prednisone. Also because of my lupus I have a few other diseases...antiphospholipid syndrome, ocd...just to name 2. My ocd is so bad that its beginning to affect every aspect of my life. Does anyone else with lupus have ocd too? Its like I'm so scared of germs and things being 'contaminated'...it drives me nuts. Sometimes because of all the stress, pain, and stuff that I have to deal with with being 'sick'...well, I just feel like I can't do it anymore. Just wondering if anyone else if feeling like this or ever has and what, if anything, I can do to get past this tough time.
