It has never been easy for me to talk about this...very difficult to put how I feel into words.
As some of you may know I am Living with Lupus. I chose those words because no matter how severe the pain can be day in and day out, no matter the hair loss, limitations from the pain, the fatigue, inflammation and the overall stigma and uncertainty of this disease...I am still living.
I first began losing my hair and had no idea why. I was diagnosed in 2012. Since then, I've worked with a host of doctors, groups and others with this disease in search of ways to make life more manageable, as Lupus is incurable. Every day is different, some good and some bad, yet a blessing in spite of this disease being physically, emotionally debilitating, and sometimes fatal.
Please join my team, participate by walking and/or donating. You can walk with me in person or walk with me virtually, from wherever you are on October 10, 2020. If you'd like to join me in person, let me know. It will be in a location that will allow social distancing. The monies donated to the Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now 2020 will aide in research leading to more understanding of this disease. Thank you in advance for your consideration and your contribution.
Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of Lupus. Thank you in advance for your support.
