What do you want others to know about lupus?

Lupus is not a condition you can see by looking at someone. Its a battle on the inside that slows you down. Its NOT something that I CAN CONTROL! Its not made up its real!

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

Everyday I am exhausted I have to have frequent Iron transfusions because my body no longer makes iron or adsorbs it thanks to lupus. My thyroid has lowered in function thanks to lupus causing my hair to fall out and I was so patchy in my hair i shaved it down for a new start. I can't go to the pool for I breakout in hives and a butterfly rash and end up sick for a month or so.
