My dogs are my children and losing two of them in two weeks is just awful!!! My heart is shattered into tiny pieces! Rest in peace my sweet Murphy! She had cancer and it started to spread all over. I don't think I have ever been this stressed out in my whole life and for me Stress=Lupus flare. I am hurting all over, more than I have hurt in years.

They say God doesn't give you more than you can handle. I can handle a lot, but I think he may have made a mistake this time. I'm not as tough as I used to be!

With love, with patience and with faith, we'll make our way.

Well that's just awful, sorry to hear about your loss. I don't give a lot of credit to that phrase of what God gives us being correct. I think most of us who suffer from SLE are ready to collapse and really aren't that tough.

Hope things get better.
