! Thanks for writing. It sounds like you are dealing with a lot and also, like me, not sure of how I feel about doctors sometimes. I have had a lot of trouble with flu like aching and have have had a battle with depression. I think when you go to the doctor and you have been feeling well and the basic tests don't reveal anything significant.....they figure you are just depressed and hand you a prescription for antidepressants. I believe that they will find the answers someday but am not sure when.....You said that they think you may have Lupus.......whet kind of tests do they do for that? I am still taking vitamin D. I believe there is some reason other than sunlight, diet, and sun screen, that causes the low Vitamin D levels. I am going to run out of room...Thanks, Cami
Just a quick note to say hi!
I was wondering how you are doing? I am still not feeling well. Taking vitamin D 1000 a day. I am not sure if taking this is the answer or finding out what is the cause n the first place of such low Vitamn D levels. Seems they don't look for the the cause.......only give you a pill and hope that that corrects. it. It seems that there must be some reasons for low vitamin D levels caused by something else. I live in Calivornia. We get quite a bit of sunshine here!! I am thinking next year of changing my health care and trying to go to some place where they might be able to give me more o an answer for the low levels...and why I am feeling so badly...
Hope things are well with you.

We also have been having computer problems that we still have not figured out. We are going to take our computer and have it checked.
Hope you are well.
