What do you want others to know about lupus?

I want everyone to know that Lupus is incurable, and hard to live with, but life is tolerable and bearable because there are so many good and blessed things in life :D

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

I went from being a work-aholic, working 80 hours a week doing manual labor to working 2 days a week at a pizza shop because my children come first. If I continued the way I was there would be nothing left of me to give to my children each day. Every day is a struggle, but the struggle is worth having a life with my family.
