Lupus and Depression

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. Join us to learn more about depression and lupus, when to seek professional help, and how to recognize and properly treat symptoms.
