What do you want others to know about lupus?

lupus is an disease of many faces! it can mimick other diseases. it a hard disease to decribe to people especially when they look at you and say you dont look sick. if you have it learn all you can about the disease. join a support group or talk to other effected by the disease. you are not alone in this!

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

it has made me relize that no one is immune to anything. i had to rethink my life and what i wanted to do. at first the lupus had me afraid to do anything. 10 years later, i am fighting it , hard!!! i have a wonderful fiance, a beautiful little girl and an full time job in healthcare so you know what i can do anything if i believe i can. yeah i hurt sonme time, im exhausted other times and many times i just wanted to give up, but i decide not to let the lupus claim me, i claim me!! and with my faith in god he has never let me down yet!!!
