What do you want others to know about lupus?

most people assume that if we look and act fine that we are. they really don't understand the disease and the toll it takes on lupus sufferers and their families. stress is a key factor and most family members don't understand that.education is the key, learn about lupus and the effects it has on our lives.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

i had to stop working at a profession that i loved because of my poor immune system and the stress. it took its toll on my marriage (now divorced) and my family.
