What do you want others to know about lupus?

Lupus (SLE)can cause TIA's (MINI STROKES) of which I've had at least 4 that I know of...and Glaucoma along with several other symptoms. It took doctors 10 years to figure out what was going on with me. The leg pain, confusion, fatigue, blood disorder (ITP) cysts on organs. The Raynaud's and fatigue are the worst ongoing symptoms.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

It took so long to get diagnosed. I almost died and went temporarily blind before anyone figured out what was really going on. Had to retire early because of the fatigue. But now with the right treatment, I'm doing much better...good and bad days. With Jehovah's help I take one day at a time.
