What do you want others to know about lupus?

Lupus is a life altering disease. It causes sometimes unimaginable pain and it exhausting! It causes your body to swell and muscle weakness. Lupus is more common than MS, Cystic Fibrosis, Cerebral Palsy combined.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

My life has changed drastically once I finally had received an official diagnosis, I went through a mourning period until I was able to accept the fact that I have Lupus. Unfortunately, it has affected me in every aspect of life - work, my relationship, friends, family and just doing things that I used to enjoy. I have learned that I can say the word "No" to family and friends and not feel guilty. All of us living with Lupus - need to fight the fight!
