Life with lupus can be challenging. With symptoms that come and go, disease flares and remissions, and the uncertainty of what each day may bring, it’s normal to experience feelings of fear, frustration, anger, or sadness. However, there is a difference between temporary negative feelings and negative feelings that become overwhelming and long-lasting, which may signal a serious but treatable illness.
