Just discharged from hospital
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about 13 years ago. To make a long story short, I was recently diagnosed with SLE. I was admitted to the hospital recently because I thought I was having a heart attack! It scared me so bad, I thought I was dying! Well, they are saying I'm having heart complications from SLE. Can anyone out there relate to this story? I'm desperate-I think friends and family think I'm losing my mind.
EVELYN, YOU WILL GET THRU THIS
I know you are scared, but hold onto your faith and your belief that you are strong and a survivor! Once the docs have finished their tests, they should be able to prescribe the right treatment. Don't be afraid to ask questions and demand explanations of anything you don't understand. I know how much energy twins take - my foster sons are twins age 10. The younger boys are singles - 8 and 6, but somehow it seems like the twins get into four times more trouble. Are your twins boy or girl or mixed? Is there anyone who can help you with your children so you can get some rest? If you can, try to put together a support system of friends you can turn to for help, so you don't have to go through this by yourself.
