Oct 3, 2011 · MCTD (Mixed Connective Tissue Disease) in Autoimmune Diseases

Ok, here goes my story….4 Weeks ago I was diagnosed with Mixed Connective Tissue disease…I am normally a busy busy person, I work full time as a police officer, volunteer at my church, work a lot of off duty, and I have Three Boxer Dogs that I show, and I’m married…so I have a lot going on and this has pretty much put a stop on everything…I’m on 30mg of Prednisone, Plaquenil, Imuran, and Amitriptiline (for depression, anxiety), and Nexium twice a day…Some days I’m fine and other days I can’t get out of bed either because I’m so tired or I’m having a flare. I would just like to talk to other people who have this disease and who can relate to me. I feel like I’m losing my mind and body for that matter…..Is it always going to be like this? How do I slow myself down? The concept just seems so alien to me….HELP
