Unhappy Been Gone for a While

Haven't been on since early February but figured I should check in once in a while when I can.

Felt absolutely terrible such that I couldn't move, joints were swollen and achy, swollen lymph nodes, no appetite, dizziness and light-headedness, extreme exhaustion, tremors, memory loss and trouble breathing.

Found out that I have systemic lupus erythematosus which attacks the body's tissues, organs, bones, etc. Got rheumatoid arthritis and my joints are twisting into weird shapes. Psoriasis is making my skin fall off. All of it's autoimmune, which means that basically my body hates itself and an overactive immune system is mistaking healthy, normal tissue as a foreign invader and trying to kill it all. My liver is really wrecked, and I am not even a drinker.

Doctor also suspects Parkinson's disease due to the tremors, memory loss and ataxia so he's packing me off to a neurologist.

I'm 40 years old and I might as well be 90. It sucks.

Anyway, that's enough whimpering and whining. Other people have things worse than me. But that's why I went radio silent all of a sudden--just didn't have the energy or mental clarity to make coherent posts.

I hope everyone else is well. What have I missed?

Sounds like just an all-around awful experience as of late. I'm glad you're able to make posts on occasion, and hopefully we'll continue to hear from you here and there as you can.

Good to see you back in the saddle! It's always darkness before dawn and just know we are all pulling and praying for you. Hey, i've been to see more doctors in the past two months than i've been to in the past 2 years. We need to talk! Lol. Keep your head to the sky!
