What do you want others to know about lupus?

the book "nutritional healin" by dr.phyllis a. balch literally changed my life. buy it and go to lupus and it tells you everything you can do for it to help you. I have also found that the only 2 breads without milk are arnold whole wheat and beano. I also found that the only butter without dairy is smart balance light.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

It is a debilitating illness and when I work I am in a lot of pain. People do not understand it and so you get shunned and mocked because of food restrictions one needs to prevent flares.
