Welcome to our family where you are most certainly are not alone. I know how being in constant pain and having debilitating fatigue can make you depressed. Depression is also very common with those of us who suffer with this disease. Having a place like this forum helps because here you will always find someone who understands, someone who will listen, someone who will have answers and someone who will let you know that you are not alone.
I'm glad that you are going to speak with your doctor about changing your medication. I truly believe that it is just as important to take care of our emotional health as it is to take care of our physical health. It is also important that we educate ourselves and our loved ones about this disease. Do you think that your husband would be willing to read some books about Lupus? If so, here are some suggestions:
* The Lupus Book : A Guide For Patients And Their Families
by Daniel Jeffrey Wallace
* Living with Lupus by Marietta Abrams Brill (Author)
* Taking Charge of Lupus:: How to Manage the Disease and Make the Most of Your LIfe - by Maureen Pratt
Please know that you can always come to us at anytime and there will always be someone here to help you and to listen to you!
Peace and Blessings
Look For The Good and Praise It!
