    Oh yessss. I have had anxiety for a long time..never really knew why. Know I know it preciptates a flare with me. I take Elavil to help sleep and I noticed it has reduced my anxiety. I always thought i was just going crazy...now I know I truly had a physical problem and it all ties together.

    i do!!!! as you can tell from my latest thread, i'm worried/anxious about a lot of things (platelets & liver enzymes). i'm just trying to pray & trust that God will work everything out. i would say i'm mostly anxious about the "what if's." anyway, yes, i'm anxious! lol.

    I have issues with anxieties. For me, they stem from thinking, walking with my mind into the depths of Lupus...the what if's especially when my pain and fatigue is at a 10 and into the what was, my life without the disease...

    And all that thinking had a domino affect into the rest of my life...overwhelmed.

    I avoid taking those mind trips...and if not successful I pop a Xanax. For the most part I do pretty good..least now I don't pack a bag and stay in that feeling for days...I can work it out with my thoughts or not think.

    Love,
    O.
    I have Lupus. So *^#@! what.

    I do too. It comes and goes. Some days I get really depressed then some days I get seriously anxious and don't have a reason to be. I'm almost to the point of going to the doc to get something for it.
    I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for someone I'm not.

    ANXIETY!!!!!!! HECK YEAH I DO!!! I NEVER had this much before! It makes sense though, because this illness attacks your CNS, our brains are part of that, so there ya go!!! Shoot, if you add in Perimenopause,menopause or any chemical imbalances we just have a nice little breeding ground for a loopie mind!!!!
    We Live in a MORTAL, FRAIL, IMPERFECT world in which the word "FAIR" doesn't always apply.Make EVERY MOMENT COUNT with the ones you LOVE because it can end in the blink of an eye. Love, Jeannette

    I suffer from deep depression and severe anxiety. I'm not sure if it is a combo of all my meds, Lupus or just life in general that brings it on, maybe all 3 are culprits.
