What do you want others to know about lupus?

Having Lupus is fighting a never ending war against the very things that keep you alive. You go to bed every night praying that when you wake up in the morning, the army inside you hasn't won.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

Lupus has made me appreciate every breath, knowing that some infection or complication could take it away tomorrow. Lupus has taught me to be creative so that I can overcome the barriers it has thrown in my path. I have Lupus, but Lupus will never have me.
