I have 'Probable Lupus' and FM. I have 2 young children and a baby and find it impossible. My husband has been off work for 8 mths to look after me and the children. I can't stay awake for more than 2 hrs and sleep about 16 - 18 hrs a day. I can't pick up the baby as I have no strength. Can't walk to the end of my's a living nightmare.



Thanks Jusme! I have also heard of getting an attorney, it's just that I've been fighting so long i'm kind of tired of fighting. I was fighting with my doctors, with cigna, now with my work. Its exhausting! No time to focus on me..ughhh...Ellie I hope things get better for you. I do not have children yet, but I cant imagine how I would feel if I did. That is a lot to handle. It is nice you have a supportive husband. I've learned that support is a huge key to staying okay...These illnesses will tear you down and they have for me in the last year.
