Eunice Beck, RN, on Cop­ing with Flares and Men­tal Health

I’m hav­ing an invis­i­ble spell again, or at least my dis­ease is. Let me try to explain. In the first place, I’m in a major flare, which isn’t help­ing my men­tal health, as we try to get my meds adjust­ed to give me at least some con­trol over my life. Because of my increased pain lev­el, more friends and fam­i­ly have heard my expres­sions of dis­com­fort or seen my dif­fi­cul­ty get­ting around. Because I get exact­ly the type of response I’m talk­ing about, I gen­er­al­ly try not to say too much unless it is to close fam­i­ly and friends who I think have some grasp of what it is like hav­ing this dis­ease. Even one of them will sur­prise me once in a while, show­ing me how lit­tle they real­ly understand.
