I'm really sorry. I think it is perfectly acceptable and understandable that you need to get away sometimes, there is nothing to feel guilty about. That doesn't mean you can't be there for your daughter to support her emotionally sometimes, but you can't be there all the time and she probably needs time and space for herself to help her deal with her health issues. Over time both of you will come to terms with her diagnosis. Now that she knows what she has there are treatments for her but it can take time for them to become effective, also make sure she talks to someone about the possibility that she might have Lupus.

I agree that you do not need to be around her 24/7 and you need time for yourself... BUT she needs your support now more than ever!! Believe me it is NO FUN having RA, I have it plus osteoarthritis and Fibro. I can't even explain how this makes a person feel mentally and physically. I understand that it's a "downer" for you, but think about how she feels... She can't just walk away from it and get a break from the daily pain and fatigue.
