Lupus Awareness- Day 9


“There are four types of lupus: systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), cutaneous lupus, drug-induced lupus  and neonatal lupus.”


Lupus affects each person it takes hold of differently. If you’re like me, and suffer from Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, or SLE, then your organs, among other things are affected. If you suffer from Discoid Lupus Erythematosus, or DLE, then your skin is affected and leads to scarring. Those who are affected by Drug Induced Lupus often develop symptoms of SLE as a result of a reaction to prescribed drugs. And those affected by Neonatal Lupus tend to be newborns/infants and is extremely rare. There are 4 types of lupus. Let’s get to KNOW LUPUS and all of its forms!

    1. That’s all we can do.. take it day by day. This morning was not a good one for me. Everything hurt. My knees and ankles have been really causing me pain. But I’m happy you’re starting to do better now. The weather normally makes me hurt more also (the cold and rain especially). Anyhow, I hope you were able to get the things you said you had to do done.
