I, like Paulette, have sarcoidosis and it has definitely hit me hard. I’ve struggled with it for over 29 years. Huge doses of Prednisone has done horrible things to my bones and has caused me to have a shoulder replacement and a cataract replaced. It also has caused me to thing differently about myself since I became a widow. I call myself a functional depressed person because I work hard everyday and put on that “happy” face. This disease has robbed me and while my heart says take it in stride, my head says something else. How do you overcome it when no one can help you heal?
