What do you want others to know about lupus?

Lupus is a tuff disease it affects you physically,emotionally,and mentally because your lifestyle will change and you will have to be strong enough to adjust.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

I have been diagnosed since 15 years old,I am now 23 and have been in remission for four years. Although in remission I have side effects from prednisone, a steriod medication used to treat lupus, which caused me to develope avascular necrosis of the hips. I have had surgery twice and had to learn how to walk again both times. I still have a full time job and I am still in remission. I have a amazing family and boyfriend that help me get through this.
