Sometimes I wish I never found out about my positive ANA. I feel like I have done nothing but gone downhill since. I don't know if I am just more aware of whats going on now and its not normal to feel the way I do or if I would have found answers anyways and it would have progressed like it is. Anyone else feel this way?
Have felt the same way. I had a life before being diagnosed and it feels like it ground to a halt after being finally told what was wrong with me. But in truth, I think it was learning what I had been subjecting my body to that changed things. I now have to remember to stay out of the sun, don't eat this or that, take these pills, get enough sleep, rest when I am tired, don't over tax my joints, etc. But as frustrating, and sometimes just depressing as it is, I have to remind myself that if I want to be around long enough to see my grandkids grow up, I have to adhere to the new me. Worth it!
It's ok kaylamarie you have us here. We r all in the same boat and we're barely floating.
I do feel that way but with this sickness it seems to be normal to feel like this. We just have to take one day at a time like you said and be strong to cope with it.
