Hello everyone, I am currently taking azathioprine. I am experiencing a huge flare of my sjogren's symptoms at the moment I think caused by over exertion, (my dad's had a heart attack a couple of weeks ago, resulting in an emergency triple heart bypass followed by developing sepsis and is still currently in hospital) I have been visiting the hospital almost every day as well as taking care of my one year old son. I am literally exhausted and almost feel sometimes like I actually just can't deal with life! I push and push and push myself until I finally fall into bed each day. I wonder if one day I might just collapse in a heap! My joints ache to the core and my eyes feel filled with grit not to mention the overwhelming exhaustion!
I just wondered how everyone else copes at times like this, I have no childcare on hand to help and I am also trying to keep my business afloat also being self employed. How do you explain to your family and friends how you're feeling without simply sounding like a moaner or a hypochondriac??!
Any advice much appreciated! Thank you x
