What do you want others to know about lupus?

I have realized that people in a whole are ignorant till something comes along and impact your life or someone close to you. I didn't know how serious it was till my daughter was diagnosed with it in 2007. And it's a very serious disease,with no cure.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

Lupus has impacted my life because my daughter was 7yrs old when she was first diagnosed with mixed connective tissue , and was diagnosed with lupus when she was 10. So by me being her mother i naturally want to fix everything for her and knowing that i cant make this go away kills a piece of me everyday. So i may not have lupus but believe me its a big part of my life and i pray for a cure everyday
