What do you want others to know about lupus?

Lupus is a harsh disease, yet I (we are) am still here and I am determined to live a wonderful, creative and victorious life no matter what symptoms manifest themselves. Living with Lupus means living on purpose, everyday I make the decision that I better than how I feel God says I am healed, therefore I'm healed.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

Lupus has impacted every area of my life: appearance, mental health,social, work, family and relationship(s) with a signficant other. My inner circle well defined with strong mature people who love and support me for me. Its made me mature faster and view the world on a different level, I smell the roses and appreciate the small things. I truly grateful, yet I long to be a little more carefree. I miss particpating in sporting events and being spontenous.
