hi, wow i havent been here in a while. anyways, i have some questions that have been bothering me for a while. i have been depresse for about few weeks now..my bf had broken off with me, went through **** and just just isolating myself from everyone..not because of that..just because of feeling down..i saw my doc yest and she suggested that i go to pschyciatrist and she thinks it might be from lupus, if so she will order an mri. i was depress for weeks and lost my appetite and lost weight. does lupus effect the brain that bad? what can happen?
