Hello friends and family. I wanted to share my story and hope that one day it’ll give the strength to someone else to stay strong to keep fighting every day from this disgusting disease we call lupus. I was recently diagnosed with lupus on March 17th 2022. I have been battling the unknown for so long. Constant in and out of hospitals. Changing doctors because no one could figure out what I had. Everyone was miss diagnosing it with your normal menstral cramping, fatigue, typical body ache. All doctors advised was loosing weight and eating healthier and I’ll be fine. That it was all in my head. Well clearly it wasn’t because here we are 30 years later and barley being diagnosed. I suffered a lot with being anemic. Constant depression. Being told I wasn’t able to bare children. Always on a whole bunch of meds and treatments. Until I had enough. It has taken me a lot to accept what I have, given it’ll be with me for the rest of my life; but it is for-sure not the end of my story. I refuse to let it take over my sanity. I have been blessed with a beautiful baby boy through the graces of god. Without him I don’t know where I would be right now. It has definitely changed my perspective on this terrible disease. My son has given me hope to take one day at a time. To accept it’s okay to not feel okay everyday. It’s okay to say you can’t do it you’ll try again tomorrow. It’s okay to go at your own pace. Lupus will not win. Lupus will not decide who you are. Lupus will not get the best of you. You will get through it. You do have support. You are not alone…. Yes we will be okay. I will be raising money to help support the research to fight lupus. I will also be joining thousands in the walk to remember those who have fought and are fighting everyday just to get through the next day. I hope you all can help me in raise awareness of lupus and help support our fight.
I am raising money towards research for finding better treatment options and hopefully one day a cure for this autoimmune disease. If you are unable to donate please share this post. Let’s spread the word of awareness for those who battle with this exhausting illness. We can do this together
God bless, much love,
Did you know?
Lupus is a mysterious and misunderstood autoimmune disease. It strikes without warning, affects each person differently, and has no known causes or cure.
Lupus symptoms can be severe and highly unpredictable and can damage any organ or tissue, from the skin or joints to the heart or kidneys.
While lupus can strike anyone at any time, 90% of people living with lupus are women. Women of color are at especially high risk.
Lupus is hard to diagnose, but the Lupus Foundation of America is working to make life easier and more comfortable for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States. Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Thank you for your generosity!
