What do you want others to know about lupus?

lupus effects a lot of different people in different ways, it can cause hair loss, skin lesions aches and pains , tiredness, depression, and so many more. If you have a great support system then you can face this disease and live a fairly good life, you just need to know your triggers and how to handle stress!!

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

I have discoid lupus which attacks my skin, i have had lesions in my eyes , mouth and my face, i get tired very easy, and the aches and pains in my joints, some days painful. I stay out of the sun, as it causes the lesions to grow and become fire red. Stress is also a major factor so i try to deal with problems head on and try to stay calm.I now am having problems with my hair falling out,I used to have very thick and long hair, but now i keep it short, thinking it would help, but the bald spots are there.
