Be Your Own Advocate!

When I was initially diagnosed in 2012, I had absolutely no idea what lupus was. I was happy I had the answer for the symptoms I was experiencing, but I was clueless to what having it meant.

I had to be my own advocate. I had to research things on my own. I had to join support groups and follow lupus blogs. I had to go outside of what my doctor explained to me.

I had to bring lupus awareness the best way I knew how. … I had to be the example!
