Let's really have a open conversation about living with the unknown and yes unexpected affects of Lupus. What are you most afraid of? Well for myself I have never really been afraid of being diagnosed with this illness, maybe it has been based on the fact that I have worked in the medical field for 30+ years. Or may be it is based upon my unrelenting faith in God, or even the way I was raised by my parents.
Here are some questions, that I really want you to sit and think about before you answer them:
I constantly ask myself why is this happening to me and not someone else?
I feel unable to adapt to your current health situation?
I become anxious and depressed what will happen to you?
I'm afraid of going to sleep and not waking up?
I can no longer work and I don't know how I will make ends meet?
I'm afraid that my significant other will no longer love me?
I'm afraid no one will really understand what I go through and a daily basis?
These are just a few questions, that I want you to take the time and think about, and lets discuss them together in a respectful way so that we can help each other.
