Hello new Lupus friends,
I am new to this site and to Lupus and I feel all alone. I have been in severe pain for over 12 years and have lost all my supposed friends due to my pain. I have OA, DDD, DJD and now avascular necrosis in my hip and jaws. People don't want to be around me because when they ask how I am I cannot lie and I tell them the truth. The truth being that I am in pain. Why is it that people ask then they don't want to hear what you have to say? I've tried to not tell others that I am hurting all the time but it shows on my face and I just can't lie. I need a new batch of online friends who understand what I am going through. Are there other's out there who are bedbound and willing to listen and be listened too?
