Welcome back. I'm sorry you are having a rough time right now. I am too. I ache, can't get enough sleep, and feel like I have a lead blanket over me. Brain fog is bad too. I used to be a very outgoing and social person, but the events that occured in my life after my 2004 SLE diagnosis changed me into an isolated introvert. That isolation is what led me to this site. Talking to others who understand really does help. I came here a guarded introvert, and now I'm a moderator here. It's never too late to come back, and there is no such thing as whining when it comes to Lupus. I've learned that the only people who can truly understand what it's like to live with Lupus, are others with Lupus. Anyway, I'm glad you found your way back.
