 I've had SLE for over 28 years.  Am not a good writer.  I came across this forum by accident and I'm glad I did.  I can relate to almost all of you on some level. I like to read your posts they are so uplifting to me.  When I'm not so embrassed about my writing skill (run on sentenencing, babbling, etc.) I will have questions to ask and might even be able to help others.

Hi Rose!
 
(sorry we had to meet here)
I think most people overlook spelling and punctuation on forums and read what was meant - Personally, I find the dash fits most of my punctuation needs tongue

 Hi everyone I'm back.  I've been hanging my head over a pail and the other end in the toilet. The Flu is running rampant in my house.  After the virus I had a migraine.  Today is the first day I coudl get my head off the pillow.  Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm so stressed because it seems once my grown children leave home they return. Now in my house is 4 adults, 2 teens and a 17 month old. One of the adult being my husband. Althought I've had lupus for half of my life because I don't LOOK sick most of the time my family and others don't think I'm sick, I'm not a whiner and I have no choice but to keep doing things like cleaning the house, cooking, babysitting and dealing with two teenage girls.  They all say Moma sit down, don't do this or don't do that because I need to rest. But if I don't do it it does not get done.  I can't rest because I can't stand to see all the mess. Along with all that stress, I have the stress of my diseases, Lupus, Migraines, Ulcers, Sinuses, brochitus, Incontinence, memory loss (from medicines) had Hepatis C (from medicines) COPD, Acid reflux so bad at times I can actually feel my food going down my throat this is painful. Overall I know I'm blessed because things could be worse.  I felt like if I joined this forum I could talk to people who understand some of the things I'm going thru. I'm not looking for a pity party its just nice to comminicate with someone who really knows what you're through.  I'm only ont the computer about twice a week because my hands are stiff and swollen a lot of the times and I have using only two fingers.  Thanks again for receiving me so warmly.

Hi Rose:

I wanted to welcome you, I can so totally relate with you. I've had lupus for 25 years now.

I'm sorry that things are kinda rough right now, everyone here is great I've been a member since 2003 I think. I just typed out a HUGE PITY PARTY RANT, and I wanted you to know its ok TO RANT/VENT, YELL, we all understand.

Will keep you in my prayers, hope the flu leaves your household soon. Again, welcome.

Hugs,
Barbara

Rose, I'd start a job jar and a "Mom's Protest".
Write down all of the jobs you do everyday on little slips of paper and put them in a jar folded up.
This is the hard part....say, "I'm on a protest right now. You will have to share responsibilites of the house."
Then sit down and take care only of yourself and the baby since he can't do much. If you're hungry just fix food for yourself and the baby. If your clothes are dirty wash only your clothes. Do only things for the baby and no one else.
Soon they will start getting the hint of how much you do for them. You may have to bite the bullet about your house being perfect, but I guarntee they will start doing something to help out.
It will be hard and you will hear protest and gripes but stand your ground. The hardest part will be not slipping back into the old routine of doing everything. You've got to take care of your health.
