Are you suffering in silent?

in by Jeniffercolocha

I have Sjögren’s Syndrome, lupus and RA, I was diagnose two years ago but I feel so lonely, my family don’t know I have medical problems and my husband was greeting upset because I was always complaining about my pains. So now I learn to keep it all to my self in that way I don’t have to deal with my pain and been upset at him for not understanding my situation…. Anybody else having the same problem? Thanks ( sorry if I spell things badly but my hands are in bad shape)

I also don't tell anyone about how i feel except i have always complained to my husband and he just tells me its all in my head and he gets frustrated with me every time i tell him how i feel and i can completely understand why he gets annoyed. That is very hard for me and puts me down because i hurt all the time and don't know what to do anymore , instead just try to hide it and keep it all in . I am 20 and when i was 6 years old i got diagnosed with alopecia, and as long as i can remember it was high school when i started to always feel sick and never felt good. After having my son which was in 2013 ive noticed that i hurt all the time my bones ache, i feel like my body's always week and can never find energy. To put a long story short I am wondering if im developing Lupus but i haven't went to the doctor yet because im the type to keep stuff in because every time i tell my family the way i feel they always say you never feel good. so growing up with that its put me in a spot to where i just keep it all myself , but ive been doing research a lot to see what could be happening and it all comes to Lupus.
