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.
