I wish I could give you something that you need to hear, and need to know what is going on with you, depending on some doctors, who apparently do not know what they are doing.
Will send prayers to you
Hey Butterflake and Sharky,
I did not see this post that you responded to Sharky as a lecture. your words spoken to Sharky were good words for me too.
I tend to think that depression in people with Lupus, is different from depression than people are sad.
Why doctors do that path? Why do they simply tell us it is all in our head, simply because they do not know what it is. They have no answer so it must be in our heads.
Thank you for being so able to share

I agree with Ginny... Sharky. you are already helping. Prior to my heart attack in October of 2007, I had everything done to start my Masters Degree in social work. I know that I can't do it, but it is inspiring to me that you are getting another degree, even though you too are sick, and in pain. Repsonding is helping. and then this stupid stroke, who upset my memory to a degree and really messed up my speech.
any day that I want to or need to, I can read the Lupus forum, and I am inspired by hope. We are not alone due to this forum. My lucky day when I found this forum. i went looking for a support group for lupus. the first group that I found is the one that I chose, and haven't needed another one.
