Home, What Is Lupus?

Lupus, My Strength And My Weakness

Whoever said “you never know how strong you are until you have to be” was absolutely CORRECT! Those words took on a brand new meaning when I was diagnosed with lupus.

There’s something about pushing through when you feel like you’re going to come crashing down. I am stronger because I have to be. I can’t allow lupus to defeat me. I can’t allow it to steal my joy. I can’t allow it to take away my sense of adventure and the will to be ME.

HOWEVER, it is my weakness. I do at times feel like giving up and giving in. I do at times feel sorry for myself and become depressed. But I can no longer allow myself to feel that way.

Dear  illness, you are the reason I am who I am!
