Lupus is a journey that I never asked for but I choose to love life, hate the disease and fight, trusting God as I am on this journey. May is Lupus Awareness month and there were several events to make people aware of Lupus and how it affects those who live with it. Lupus is more pervasive and severe than many realize since many of the symptoms can be invisible or mimic other diseases.
People, like me, with Lupus are being heavily impacted by COVID-19, that is why I think it is more important than ever for us to come together and rally our communities to raise awarness and funds to support those affected.
My struggle continues as my heart, lungs and kidneys are most affective. It is so daunting sometimes because I am not sure what is going on inside my body. Most of the time I have to wait until my body signals that there is something wrong but sometimes the damage has been done. From day to day I never know what new challenge I will face.
There is thoughts that a change in diet can be helpful and some natural practices may even put Lupus suffers in remission but natural remedies are not as affordable. So your help is needed in helping to solve the mystery and find a cure and better medicines. You can make a donation in several ways, you can:
1. Donate through Facebook.
