    I have before experienced stress related flare ups, but right now....... the worst ever.
    I had been having a bad flare up for a few weeks, and then on March 10th, they found my younger brother in his apt., he had passsed away 2 days earlier. he was just 50.
    needless to say, Im a mess. the pain and fatigue are awful.
    I feel like a total mess.

    I wish I knew of a way to relieve some of this. Im not dealing well physcially or mentally with all his.

    i can't imagine what you are feeling right now. my heart goes out to you.<3

    stress does exasperate symptoms.

    when i am stressed out, i pray, and it really does help me. i feel some of the pain and stress lifted from my body.

    i will say a prayer for you that God will be with you and give you some peace in your heart, and some release of the pain in your body.

    Iam so sorry for your loss.

    It is so hard to deal with things while in a flare.Do you have family around? Maybe talk to a grief counseler. you have to take care of yourself. ask your doctor for meds to help you thru.

    I lost my dad a year ago and have still not gotten back on track.

    my thoughts are with you
