New to site: Depressed beyond belief
:cry: I'm glad I found this site. Just knowing all of you know what I'm going through makes me feel a little better. I never talked with anyone who had my initial symptoms. I was diagnosed in 98 after I experienced months of hives, itching, and swelling of my face. In 2003, I was also diagnosed with Schlerdoma. Since then I've been in a deep depression and can't find my way out. I'm 25, single, and no children. Even though I have a great family and wonderful friends I feel completely alone. I feel like the devil (the diseases) has taken my life away. Many days I can turn to the Lord and find the strength to make it through the day, but today is not one of them. Even though I want and deserve a loving boyfriend I just don't believe anyone will be able to deal with the up's and down's of my life. To top everything off I have to go for test to determine if I'm going through early menopause because of the Cytoxan. My life is a mess. At this very moment I've cried so much I given myself a headache and I'm ready to give up on life period. Does anyone have any encouraging words to get me through this very difficult period in my life.
