Hey Guys! I'm feeling a little down here lately after an unsettling 2 year struggle. I've posted on here a few times about my trials and tribulations and I want to thank everyone for there help and support! Will I ever have a normal life? After thinking I had the stomach flu for a week I ended up in the hospital...turns out it wasn't a stomach flu instead apparently my lupus attacked my gallbladder (this is what the pathology showed) and it stopped working. So, then I had to have surgery to have it removed. I know that gallbladder problems happen to a lot of people without lupus but my main problem is why couldn't it have just been the stomach flu? I'm so tired of this fight and I feel that I'm not going to win it sometimes. :cry: To top it off I just got back from a trip with a friend and I spent the whole time having to stop and rest. I know she didn't want to say it but I think it annoyed her that I was having to stop a lot. She's family so she knows all about my lupus and has been very supportive and I don't want to portray her as anything else. But that being said I wanted so desperately to have her energy and stamina. Living with Lupus, my genetic condition and being in low-grade DIC is wearing me down fast. Does it ever get better or at least a tiny bit easier?
Praying for strength for all of us,
