It has been awhile since I have been on here, but I've been having some issues lately, and the advice & caring comments that I have received on this forum in the past have been really helpful. Sooooo, I am here to vent, once again. First of all, I recently got married, (in May), and since then, lupus has been rearing its ugly head again. My poor husband is getting broken in really good! Lol! But thank God for him & my parents!!
Anyway, I had to have 2 kidney biopsies in August. This is my second fight with lupus nephritis in the past 5 years. So of course my docs put me back on CellCept & prednisone. Well then the meds caused my blood pressure to skyrocket. After pretty much maxing out on several different bp meds, we finally got it down, (it was actually a little low for a few weeks), and now it is all of a sudden high again. This is so frustrating to me & I don't know what to do. I have been so depressed lately & I obsess over it. I know I am probably my own worst enemy, because my worrying & stressing don't help with the bp, but I don't know what else to do! I am at my wits end & on the verge of a breakdown. PLEASE, any advice is welcome, for the high blood pressure and/or the depression. I could really use some help.
Lots of Love!
