What do you want others to know about lupus?

I have been living with Lupus for the last 13 years and I have two beautiful daughters. Taking care of the kids can be challenging but their smile keeps me going as long as I know when to stop and ask for help. You have to know your limits and when your body gives you the warning take it seriously and rest so you don't make things worst.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

I am the kind of person that is always on the go and sometimes I forget that I have lupus and over exert myself but my family is always around telling me it's time to stop. They are very supportive and pick up where I can't. Everyone should have a good support system and not be afraid to ask for help.
