I am feeling an overwhelming need to shed tears. I have been holding back for sometime. I have been acting brave and as if I haven't a care in the world. Although I still have no clear diagnosis's of lupus or any other autoimmune ( with the exception of Graves) I am feeling increasing pain and a sense of being overwhelmed. I have always bee in excellent health and it all came crashing down in Aug of 2014. My life has been totally turned upside down as if I am caught up in a rip tide and can't find my way to the top. I no longer take life for granted and I always look for the good and will continue to do so . But when days like this hit it is really hard. This past weekend I was in more pain than usual, slept 12.5 hours and continued to feel drained. All the additional test that my Dr. has done are all coming back negative. I just want to feel normal again! Stress is mounting with sister- in -law falling down the stairs now in the hospital for a major infection, My son's teacher/mentor committed suicide, managing my employee is like a full time position in it's self. Projects around the house are mounting some are in progress others need to be addressed, daughter traveling allover the Us on her own for the first time. I guess it is all catching up and hitting hard! Bahhha!
Thanks for listening

Sounds like you're on stress overload. Hang in there and find a outlet to vent that stress. I use hypnosis to relax and ease my stress. There's a great hypnotherapist on YouTube I love, David Fairweather. He can ease my stress very easily with his calming voice and ocean sounds.

I'm so sorry that you've been going through such a hard time. My wife has fibro and she is a stay at home mom with two kids. I'm sure it's overwhelming what you're going through but there is hope in your situation and I pray that you will feel some of that weight begin to get light for you. Hang in there and God bless.

Thank you Icanspell. It must be difficult to have to children at home and suffer from Fibro. Being a stay at home mom is a lot of work without any issues. My kids all live at home but my youngest is 16 so they are pretty much own their own which really does help. I hope your wife gets some relief from time to time! :)

I have had times when I feel like that as well. It is very hard not to feel well, and sometimes it just gets to you. Try to take it one day at a time, or even one or two hours at a time. Also, try to do something you enjoy, or go for coffee with a good friend. Those kinds of things really lift me up during difficult times.
