Home, What Is Lupus?

Lupus Awareness- Day 10

Fact:

“Lupus can range from mild, with little to no symptoms, to life threatening. Even when lupus is mild, almost every case needs to be treated by a doctor. With good medical care, most people with lupus can lead a full life.”

I have been thanking God daily for allowing my lupus to go from severe (when I was initially diagnosed) to mild (present day). I have gone from taking 5 prescribed medications to only having to take 2. I have gone from seeing my team of doctor’s every 1 to 3 months to now only having to see them every 6 months- you know, just in case. I went from being under attack so frequently that my doctors knew my number by hard. Now, they’re no longer the first on my call logs favorites’ list.
I take no day for granted. I take each day for what it is. Because you never know with lupus. You have your good days and then some not so good days. But you learn to manage. You learn that it could be SO MUCH WORSE. So you become a warrior and you survive. This May let’s get to KNOW LUPUS!

    1. Thank you for reading 😊 I thought the posters were very informative as well. I learned a lot from them. And I agree with you. The more you know the better you’re able learn, take charge and even cope with your life living with lupus. And that’s just how I’ve been going about it. I remind myself that some people are so worse off than me. I count my blessings.
      And I’m glad you liked my post. It’s always great to hear that I’ve been of some assistance. I wish you well in fighting all of the illnesses you battle. You’re one tough cookie.
