What do you want others to know about lupus?

Lupus is a debilitating disease that no one should have to live with. It is painful and you never know when you will have a flare up. It has cousins by the name of sarcoidosis and fibromyalgia, which are just as debilitating. Hopefully 2014 is the year of great advances.
