Lupus Awareness- Day 6


“Lupus is known as “the great imitator” because it’s symptoms mimic those of other diseases.”

  1. Hey Sunshine!!
    I had a red patch on my face for a few years I finally went to the dermatologist office since I started to get the butterfly rash he took a sample but told me right then that he believed it to be lupus..He did a bunch of blood work took more skin lol and sure enough Lupus I even have the one that attracts my organs and of course the sun or light and heat..I have to stay inside like a damn vampire lol..
    I have tried to watch the video a few times but it will not…

    1. Since going to the dermatologist I haven’t gotten it. But I do have Lupus SLE which is the one that affects your organs. It’s currently trying to ruin my lungs. So I see a pulmonary doctor regularly and have had to give up dairy completely :( the sunlight and heat affect me too. .. which is why I hadn’t gone to the beach in over 2.5 years. I just usually stay inside or wait until the sun has gone done. Watching videos help but after awhile you start to crave something else

      1. we a lot alike I also have the organ lupus too…in fact I have them all lol
        so fun…Mine is playing havoc on different organs I have to see and it’s time for an upper GI ..Oh I love Ice cream please let me just have my chocolate lol…I don’t see a pulmonary Dr as pf yet.. I should but damn I have so much to check off and get done health wise but with dads medical I always put myself last ..Not his fault at all but then I get so tired I don’t make appointments …
        Oh let’s hope your lungs come out ok…let me know what the Dr has to say (if you want)…
        I see a heart Dr but dang it has been 6 years I think lol…I really need to work on things………….
        Well I seen that you were at the beach and that made me smile so you go gurl lol…
