Re: Ouchie.. :(
Sep 4, 2009
I can so identify. It is sad that we have to go through so many doubters before we actually get some answers. I know I felt relieved once I was diagnosed as it was totally depressing having the frustration of not being taken seriously by the medical community. I felt so much better to be validated by any diagnosis and treatment. I will say my depression has improved. Sometimes all it takes is one sympathetic ear. I wish the medical community would teach patient sensitivity classes. It would serve not only the patients but also curb the need for counselling and depression meds.

I know you must be relieved as well. My lupus diagnosis was my salvation, as I had been through countless trials of meds for fibromyalgia and had poor response and actually some made me worse. I went over 2 years that I could not drive due to the adverse reactions I had to meds. My plaquenil treatment has vastly improved my being able to function. I am still unable to work, but I can live independently and enjoy life again. I do know the relief you feel. I am hoping your treatment will see you improve as well.
