What do you want others to know about lupus?

Everyday be thankful for the little things cause one day you may not be able to do them any more! Ths disease hit hard and fast for me changing my life instantly. Know this disease is one of the hardest thing ever but we can get through it to better healthier lives.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

Lupus hit me at an age that i should be living it up. Going out with friends care free but instead im at home sick or having to go to doctors. I have always been very independent so to learn to ask for help was one of the hardest things for me to learn to do but when you cant even get out of bed by your self you dont have a choice. I could have a pity party every day but than the disese would be winning! Thanks to a great support system and a positive attiudue im slowly getting through this horrible disease! Day by day i will beat lupus it will not control my life forever!
