I have SLE since 2013 or maybe earlier for the doctors were all so confused with my overlapping symptons. Rash face and body, fever, inflammation and weakness. I am 62 yrs.old and the last chronic disease I found out about with me was Lichen Planus which is also connected with the immune system degenerating. I was put on Lisinopril 2.5 mg. and took it one tome and was in ICU for 2 weeks and rehad for 7 days in Dec. 2014. I almost dies for now I have severe medicinal allegies. I am allergic to Prednilisone but I am able to take Dexamethasone. Now I have a round pie face and lots of extra pounds. I been handling this ok, just ok. But this week I can not stop crying. I look in the mirror and feel so ugly and I have always been mindful of my weight. I only take 1 1/2 mg. aday for inflammation, knots and swellings even my lips. My lymphs in my neck are outrageous. I go to a Hematologist, Kidney Specialist, Rheumatologist and Dermatologist. They say I am unique, yep, lol thats me. Oh also I have PTSD since my 40's. , social anxities and I just want to share my story and thank you all for such a kind place to share. It is lonely with Lupus and now I feel there are others who understand. Thanks.
