What do you want others to know about lupus?

Lupus is such a devastating disease.Anyone can get it and it's so unpredictable.I am so happy that there is finally so much support for this terrible disease.I hope in my lifetime we can all fight together and find a cure!!!!

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

Lupus has impacted my life in so many ways.I never thought I would be 25 yr's old and have half the problems this disease has given me.I was diagnosed in 2006 with lupus & than bc of the lupus I also have PAH (Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension)In my lungs as well as RA.I am on ssd bc I am sick and in pain all of the time and I have a very hard time walking without getting out of breath.I'm not me anymore I've become so deep in depression that I dont even want to leave the house.I'm trying so hard to not let this disease beat me and I'm hoping to win the fight! stay strong everyone! I know it's a long hard road ahead for all of us but we must stay as positive as possible!.
