What do you want others to know about lupus?

Lupus, is a disease that affects every culture, race, age and creed. As mysterious as he cause can be for this disease, it reaches many of our loved ones. Also some could have different variance of this disease. Hope is the best coping cure.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

My loving mother was diagnosed 2 years ago. Then the affects we very minimal. Now, today I worry if she remembers the hugs, kisses, love and support I give her. Sometimes she forgets I was siting next to her and gets very confused. My mother also has pain through the night in her legs. Moving to use the restroom at times is a challenge for her at times. I am amazed though how she does not let it bother her. She still continues to go to work, and come to family functions. Her "Blush" is ever present, but I know she is a fighter and she and I are hopeful for a cure.
