    You can do it girl. One day at a time, it all adds up. It sounds like, from the drugs, your seeing a rheumatologist? My family knows just what the body can go thru and recover. I've had 36 surgeries on this poor old tired body(I jest, cause I just started back to the gym 3 weeks ago. Gawd it feels good, in a sore kinda way. I've got an open wound on my back from an infection in my back from the surgery(rods and fusions) but still need to keep in shape to transferring and doing housework, shopping. You keep on top of this krapolla and don't let it get ya down. There's worse stuff out there.Have an ex neighbor just found out she had colon cancer, such an aggressive type, she was in surgery in 5 days. Keep a smile. Guy

    My sincerest sympathy for what your going thru. I've had lupus for 30 yrs. I shivered when I saw the drug routine's. Solumedrol, pred.Have you bitten anyone's head off yet? I kicked a childproof gate thru the window next to the door when I had consecutive drips of solumedr. and pred. Dr's didn't let me know to watch for HIGH anxiety. I have had the psor, have vasculitis, and alot of the others you mentioned. However after we got meds and disease squared away, went into remission and was able to even play basketball til i was 45, then it all went to hell. 13 back surgeries(pred)last one was botched, and am now partial para.
    The dr here's right, he always is, kinda like a wife. I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know it can get alot better. God bless and good luck
