What do you want others to know about lupus?

It can be treated and you can overcome the odds! It is very rarely fatal and with new research you can live a long life.....

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

From the onset, I said I was going to conquer this disease. I have been in remission for several years with good diet,rest,exercise and a positive attitude. I realized in the beginnig that most people are unaware of the symptoms and we all need to be educated. This is a disease that could effect any family member and they will need your support! A support system is imparative. Some days it is hard to even get out of bed and the love and caring of family means so much to the well being of a lupus patient.
