Hi Igail, welcome to the group. Lynnwood gave you some good advice. Actually even if you do have anxiety and depression you would not be any different then most of us. I have both. It's actually part of the disease. Lupus can cause low adrenal gland function and adrenal fatique causes depression and anxiety. If your rheumy does not give you something for your symptoms I would suggest you find another rhummy. most of us are not lucky enough to find a good one right off the bat. Make sure you write down all your symptoms. ask your family if anyone has any of the symptoms you suffer from.
let us know how it goes and if you have any more questions before friday be sure to shout out. I doubt if out of all of us there is much one of us hasn't suffered with.
