What do you want others to know about lupus?

Support is one of the best gifts you can give someone. No one wants to be alone, especially when they're in pain.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

My best friend in the entire world has been extremely sick for 4 years now. She's only 19 and has been in the hospital countless times, has been through tons of tests, and has suffered so much because of this illness. She was initially told it was all in her head and that it was because of her depression. Only a few days ago was she diagnosed with lupus. It breaks my heart to see someone so close to me suffer every day; I can't even imagine how she, and others living with lupus, feels.
