Hi Dumplin, There are a lot of folks here that see Dermatlogist for problems with their skin. I wouldn't be surprised if it had something to do with Lupus. A dermatologist could remove it and do a biopsy which could be a lot of help with a diagnosis. Unfortunately lab work doesn't tell the whole story and it can take months to years to get the answers. As for your eyelashes oh yeah that happens. I have lost a lot of hair all over. Thining hair on my head plus my legs don't have nearly as much growth.
I really hate that your family isn't supporting you through this. I'm a widow so I don't have the hubby problem but I do have family members who choose to turn a blind eye.
It's not like you choose to be sick. Depression and anxiety is all part of the disease. Not having insurance is really tough. I would absolutely talk to your doctors and try to get support to get some help with possibly/hopfully getting on disability so you can have some cash flow and at least medicaid. Get a lawyer that only deals with disability cases. You will owe them money in the end but at least you will have somone fighting for you. Somtimes it takes several denials before you are approved. Just don't give up on it. I think that might help you and your husband if you can find a way to get some financial releif. You have enough stress. There are some pharmaceutical companies that are actually starting to help people in your situation.
I have insurance but just all the traveling and gas and co pays can get to be too much somtimes.
Hang in there and keep coming back. You will find answers and support from some really great people.
