have had lupus more than 16yrs, parent of one 11yr old child stopped work last yr lost mobility in certain joints . .i've tried enbrel/humira/plaquenil/methatraxate/preds/warfarins and every addictive temporary and partially helpful pain pills or injection which depresses and makes me feel dependent. while all symptoms remain the same or worsen(blood clots-osteoporosis etc.) i had 2 rounds of rituxan(chemo drug) helped for about 6months but I cant afford another round and question if it will help. The methotraxate and other drugs cause me to feel isolated and not even want my husband near me. I lie about the pain to seem stronger and yet I limp and swell every where I wait till the house is empty to use the restroom so no one will see me stuck on the comode. I dont want to be loved physically but sill desire to help everyone...have I lost my mind? why do I lose my balance, and drop things? does anyone attribute the meds to physical imbalance, isolation and low sex drive

Hello Aree!  Welcome to the forum!!

stopped work last yr lost mobility in certain joints  If you haven't applied for SSD (social security disability) you should probably do so right away.  It seems that part of the process is the first denial . . . so, while that sounds like spinning your wheels, it is eventually part of the approval process
 
i  had 2 rounds of rituxan(chemo drug) helped for about 6months but I cant afford another round and question if it will help.  If it helped the first time, it will likely help more as it builds in your system.  If the pause between treatments is way longer than the suggested dosing, you are essentially starting over.
 
Often drugs are available at low or no cost if you can do a little leg work.  Here are some links . . . hopefully one of them will help get you some assistance with the cost of your meds.
 

The methotraxate and other drugs cause me to feel isolated and not even want my husband near me.  I'm guessing that this feeling of isolation is not related to the drugs, but more about how you feel about yourself and how bone tired we get.  Pain and fatigue rob our bodies of essential brain chemicals that would normally give us a sense of well-being as well as allowing us to interperet the world around us correctly.

I lie about the pain to seem stronger and yet I limp and swell every where  I try to hide a lot of my issues too.   But I give periodic updates to hubby at appropriate times, like "I'm really having a hard time sleeping for the last couple weeks because the pain is not being controlled and I can't get enough pillows  in the bed to support everything properly, etc. etc" Our loved ones NEED to know what is ACTUALLY going on with us . . . but they don't need a blow by blow all day, every day.  If you give information periodically, your family is more able to support you and you may feel less isolated.  Men, espescially, don't read body language and clues very well . . . they can interpret as "drama" or not notice it at all.  If you say you don't hurt, but then you limp and swell . . . he may think that you actually don't hurt, but that you have a limp.  So you have "trained" him to stay out of the loop.  If you don't share, no-one can help.  Guys REALLY, REALLY want to help.  If they can't help then they walk around like the problem doesn't exist . . . that is how they make their world work.

I dont want to be loved physically but sill desire to help everyone...have I lost my mind? No . . . you have not lost your mind.  Those whith chronic, debilitating illness can understand exactly waht you are saying. 

why do I lose my balance, and drop things? There is actually a current topic about that.  See http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=29&m=924179&g=928377#m928377  It seems that lots of us have issues with falling, balance and dropping things. 

does anyone attribute the meds to physical imbalance, isolation and low sex drive  at least for me, was happening MORE before meds.   The isolation and low sex drive seem to have a LOT to do with how we are feeling about ourselves.  You have had this disease a long time to have still not come to terms with it.  There is a way that you learn to live with it . . . to co-exist with it.  To pace yourself so that you don't cause a flare.   You certainly need to grieve for your old life . . but to make that grieving period, but then we need to pick ourselves up and figure out how to make all of this work.  That means trying meds (with a positive attitude) and trying different combinations and types of meds to find out what works for our own individual body. That can take a very long period of time and then the disease process changes and we have to readjust frequently. 

I'm glad you found us . . . if you stick around and read and post, you'll find that by-and-large people here are very positive.  The last few days we've had an unusual amount of posts where people are just having a really hard time.  When the length of daylight shortens it can also rob us of the brain chemicals that I was talking about above . . . so that might be part of the bigger picture. 

Glad you found us!!!

Blessings!

Thank you all for the warm receptions. I cry because someone understands, and not just says that they do.  Alwaysrosie you put it simply if I cant control the waves I'd better learn to surf. I will try every link you gave me for the meds. thanks again, Aree

Oh Aree . . . You are SO welcome!!  I'm so glad that my post was helpful.  It is SO hard to word things in a way that reads what was intended.  I always worry about offending someone with the "surf attitude".    I have learned over the years that my emotional energy is something I must guard very wisely.  I can be just as drained from worry, shock, guilt, grief as I can from working too hard physically.  I have learned LOTS of little tips here at the forum.   Each little tid-bit adds up and lightens our load.  Its kind of a dance we learn.

You also might enjoy an essay called "The Spoon Theory"  You can find it at butyoudontlooksick.com    If you print it out, it really helps explain to your hubby and others how you really feel.

Blessings!

Aree, welcome to the forum. Rosie has a way of explaining things that's just plain ol' wonderful and I'm so happy to hear that it helped you. But I have to admit that my new mantra is going to be "If I can't control the waves, I'd better learn to surf." What a powerful way to look at life. You're going to be a terrific asset to the forum and I'm glad you're here. I believe that you'll find yourself feeling a little less isolated when you get involved here because you'll see that you really are understood and you're not crazy. You expressed many of the feelings we all have and I know that in my case it helps so much to be able to talk about it with other people who understand me. I learned long ago not to expect my friends and most of my family to really "get" what I'm going through so I limit what I say to them. This forum fulfills many of my needs in a way that healthy people just can't.

I look forward to learning more about you.

THANKS PATTYLATTY AND HIPPIEMOM2, YOU ARE BOTH RIGHT i DO FEEL less isolated I think I need to deal with some inner healing and all of the positive things you guys state are encouraging me to tie a knot at what seemed to be the end of a short rope and just hold on. I did not know who to or where to turn to. After all these years of being dignosed the last 3 have been excruciating and depressing but your messages are making that feeling of being misunderstood less of an issue. thanks Aree

Hi aree, I'm carol. I see you got great folks here helping you out. I'm having a little bit of brain fog right now so I'll just say welcome to the group. It sounds like you really need a place like this to share what is going on with you. I know it has been a God send for me. So one more big welcome and a huge HUG!

looking forward to getting to know you

Hi aree,

I havent posted lately because I haven't been feeling well and have been going thru a time of testing etc. And yet I know when I begin posting again, it'll be like I haven't been gone. All of my friends here understand that this is how it is. "Friends" in the "real world" would be offended if I didn't uphhold my end of the friendship. That gets too hard sometimes and makes friendship hard to maintain while we have flares and lots going on. This forum has been a vital part of my learning how to be "okay" with having a chronic illness.... I can deal with it in a healthy way, even with humor and do the best things to keep my self as healthy as I can and try to better myself withing the limits I have now.

I'm really glad you found us at what seems to be the right time in your "lupie life" :-)

xoxo emmie

Emmy, your todays story more than equates to so many of my days and situations.  Maybe you are open with your friends and family and they listen-hear-understand, that support is great. I am so thankful you found energy to work your way to the pc and welcome me, please, however I do urge you to be careful and take it gradually. Sometimes I awake (well after hours of morning stiffness) thinking I can do anything but the later day price isnt worth it. As I was writing this my phone interrupted us the caller explained that they found an agency to pick up 66% of my next rounds of chemo drug(rituxan) I am so thankful because I have begun to drop things and lose my balance a great deal more often than usual, maybe this will help. stay comfortable and again I appreciate you thinking of me. (do you know much about rituxan) thanks Aree

Hi Aree and welcome! I'm getting caught back up after a few days, but didn't want to miss welcoming you. I saw you have already been told about the spoon theory, which is awesome; but I also wanted to share a link from the summer Healing Well newsletter: www.healingwell.com/library/health/salvucci1.asp that deals with coping with a chronic illness. I was just diagnosed last year with lupus, so this forum and all of these little tools are a great way to "ease" yourself into accepting and coping with this disease. As I read all of the posts here, I found myself nodding my head "yes" in agreement and understanding to all of the frustrating, aggravating things this disease throws at us (Just as I usually do!). You have found a great place for true understanding. (((Hugs)))

Thanks sharentrials for the warm welcome I am looking forward to looking up the website you made reference to. Every day I look for some way to cope with the illness and the battles that are related. I am so sorry to hear about your dx and you are correct I feel like through all of my inner pain, my families & friends have confusions that make things so much more difficult and therfore this -as you say is a great place for understanding.

Hi aree,

I'm just getting caught up too and wanted to add my welcome. I'm so embarrassed since this is so late... please forgive me. I have had a rough ride the past few weeks and extremely busy at work. I'm glad you are here and I am looking forward to your posts. :-)

Hi Aree,

   Another welcome coming your way! There's really nothing for me to add to the great advice and support you have already been given. This forum is awsome, isn't it! Everyone is so kind and helpful. It's great to have a place to come where everyone understands or can relate to what your dealing with.

   Hang in there and please keep us updated. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Yes Aree . .. we had a topic on that recently. Lots here said that they felt a rise in symptoms during their period. . . . so you are not alone in this issue. Some members increase their pred or anti-inflams a bit (with doctor's approval) just before and a couple days into their period. But when you say that you are weaker . . . I wonder if your iron is low. You should bring that up to your doctor.

Blessings!

I Aree:

I see a lot of the ppl here have been helping you out. I wanted to welcome you to the site and let you know you're not alone. I totally can relate to the feeling "am I loosing my mind". I have to say that I took Cytoxan orally and IV for 11 months and according to my doctors "YES" it made things worse for me. The Cytoxan helped my lupus, but caused me to get a rare for of blood cancer. Which now is untreatable except for a bone marrow transplant which I have no donor for and my bone marrow hasn't failed me enough yet to attempt it.

I feel isolated and alone. I feel that I've ruined my family's life style and I'll just become a bigger burden to them. I know that they love me but they may be happier without me around. So I understand how you're feeling I truly do. I had 3 infusions of rixtuan and I didn't see any results from it but I'd say give it another try if you can get the drug company to pay for it. I hope that you begin to feel better physically and emotionally. Remember we're always here for you. Welcome to our group, we're very tight knit here and support each other always.

Take care,
Barbara

Barbara, you just made my heart bleed for you. That means you can smile for just a little while because I will hold your end of the burden. Last week I was told by my md a company would help pay for the rituxan (which works temporarily only) but any relief right. The real joy? I thought was when northwestern told me I could be a part of a cyclophosphamide/cytoxan or cell cept -stem cell study I did some research today I saw all the possibilities or side effects of cancer. To hear you mention the above makes me think we are doomed either way. I quess thats why I pray, do as much lying down as possible and wish I had the answer. I stay inward because others dont understand and always seem to say some surface left field loving off the point remark...but you barb I understand. stay positive seems like a good thing to say but a more realistic statement is lets wait painfully and see what happens.
hoping you feel better, Aree.

barbara, one more thing your friends/family need you in there way and just may seem distant because its hard to explain snow or ice to a person from a hot zone.,,,,,,,,,they dont know. thats why my life is secret and i feel isolated and hate to complain and wish when i say its good it really were. my uncle over the phone the other day said" you have lost a great deal of weight but you look good you seem not to complain but I can hear tears in your voice he then asked...is there anything I can do? even Jesus needed help carrying his cross to cavalery. I stayed strong got off the phone and cried because even his offer to help can not fix me.
thanks for your welcome and lets work thru this together.
bless you aree

Oh dear (((((((Barbara))))))))), you have it so rough sis. I'm sorry you feel so alone . . . you really do have so much going on. Of course you haven't ruined your family's life style . . . and it IS hard for them . . . but the hardest thing is seeing you so ill with no way to help fix it. Of course they would NOT be better off w/o you. I've heard it said that "if Satan takes your joy, he has taken everything". Well, I don't know if I can say that here . . . but you are the King's Kid and you are precious. Don't accept a thought like that. You can come here and vent and scream and yell . . . but don't accept an ugly thought like "they'd be happier w/o you". When your time is done here they will all miss you SO much. I'm going to log off soon and I will pray for you dear one. I worry about you!!

Prayers and hugs and blessings!

Hi Rosie:

I wanted to say thank you so much for thinking of me. I know that I seem down a lot of the time. It's just really hard to keep up good spirits. My oncologist was very open and honest with me, he informed me because I'm so young, that my MDS will only worsen and I'll have to have a transplant to continue to live. That there really isn't anything to do for me and that I'll worsen everyday over the next few years. He wouldn't give me an exact time table, but he figures in the next 4 to 5 years I'll be listed as terminal and we'll have to do the transplant if we can find a donor for me.

Knowing these things it's hard to keep my spirits up, and I have to say I'm so so worried about being a burden to my family. My daughter even mentioned that if something happened to my hubby, she'd put me in a nursing home when I got really bad off. That hurt my feelings so bad, and it truly made me think about being such a huge burden to them. I know that I need to keep faith and I do believe miracles can happen, but the way things have gone in my life, I don't think I'll get one.

Anyway, Rosie thank you for being so caring about me and offering up encouragement to me. I hope you continue to do better. Thanks for being here.

Love,
Barb

* tears while reading your post * You are WAY upbeat for all you have to deal with. You have taught us how to do that dance. Barbara, your daughter is at a most awkward part of her life and will be for another couple/few years. . . she's probably compassionate one day and resentful the next . . . sounds very normal for her age. If they took us too seriously they would stop their lives and be stunted for their deep desire to help us. . . . but it still hurts.

My kids used to tease me . . . I had no diagnosis, I just thought I needed more sleep . . . and I'd lay on the couch and tell them . . . don't bother me for 15 minutes . . . well they turned it into a taunt . . . they'd snide back and forth to each other "15 minutes, please, just 15 minutes" Well . . . it is still a family joke, but they really do feel bad now for having made fun of that. And they remind me that it wasn't just 15 minutes . . . *sigh* But they would bend over backward now . . . If I need something, they would each help all they could. They do mature eventually. . . and I think that is a safeguard built in so they don't get too caught up in our adult issues.

You are welcome Barb . . . you are always here for the rest of us too.

Prayers and Blessings!

Rosie
your ear, your words, your encouragment and the way you seem to comfort with your responses....I am so deep in misery and pain from what seems like being dealt a bad hand that when I hear another persons story I relate and share my pain without hearing and responding to the real issue at hand. You all are teaching me patience and understanding, just what I proclaim my family/friends are not able to exemplify.
thank you for reminding me to hear/listen - I am growing
