I hear you. I remember when i was with my husband and getting sick a lot, i felt like hiding and not joining in everything, because I truly felt horrible when i did. There was a lot of depression, FROM the disease that was not diagnosed yet. My thyroid was being hit by the Lupus. I eventually was diagnosed with Hoshimotos thyroiditis (can't spell it) .The thyroid looks like a lumpy sack of potatoes and I was low on thyroid hormone. I started to feel so much better when I was given thyroid meds. You are not "Debbie Downer" . You are sick Sweet Girl and soon you will fell better. Until then, Slather in sunscreen, take little naps when you need, and live, laugh and love as best you can until you feel better. I pray you feel better soon and that those who love you will be patient and understand until you are feeling better. Tammy
