What do you want others to know about lupus?

It is a devastating disease that can affect all aspects of your body. It can change your life physically, financially and socially. The doctors are just now starting to somewhat understand the dynamic of this illness. The drugs we have had to take will help you and harm you. Thank you

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

I had to retire from the Irs, I had surgery for neucrosis, shoulder problems, anemia, bruises on my face and legs. And trying to start my life again.
