My husband has been dianosed for 2.5 years i would love to hear about lupus from another mans perspective but having trouble getting in touch with anyone in the area! we live on the east coast of EnglandAntaeus;549763 said:Thanks...definitely interesting. After dealing with lupus cns outbreaks for the past ten years and finally getting diagnosed three months ago, I'm thinking that there may be many men out there who are either being undiagnosed or misdiagnosed...simply because "lupus is a woman's disease."
Hi LilyLily;552651 said:Hi lup,
Upon re-reading the article I don't think they are insinuating that men are bringing these feeling on themselves (maybe other articles do?) . I took it that men's circumstances are different to our own and present with their own set of problems which were outlined in the article and explained very well by you also. As you say is there any wonder there are self esteem issues! It's not the fault of the patient but the circumstances the disease forces upon them.
Hope your weekend is going ok.
Thank you. Sometimes it feels like the only skill I have left that I have any confidence in is that I can still express myself fairly well in text. When I'm not too tired of course (And I had to have a nap after posting last time )Katharine;552685 said:I understood it in the same way as Lily but you have also written very well to express it
