What do you want others to know about lupus?

Lupus can be a very debilitating and draining disease both physically and mentally. Even if someone looks like their ok it doesn't mean their not going through something so the next time you meet someone with Lupus take a minute and just think about what they are or have been through. Even though we're fighters and survivors we still need support from others.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

Lupus has caused me to adjust my life in many different ways from taking meds to Dr visits and hospital stays but that only makes me try that much harder to achieve what I set out to do. I was lucky to diagnosed quickly but i have had many complications over the years. My hair has been falling out for the past year and I had a premature baby in 02 among other things. I know there is still more to come and Lupus can be hard to live with but it has made me a fighter and until we can find a cure that is all we can do.
