I am not going to fight this lying down. And I will never give up without a fight! Because giving up goes against my grain!
I am coming up on 4 years since being diagnosed with lupus- the date is less than a week away. And one thing I can say is, my attitude towards my illness, my outlook on it and my personality due to it, has gone through a complete metamorphosis.
I am no longer the young girl scared, confused and in denial of what her physician had just explained to her. Never mind the fact that I didn’t believe there was any grain of truth in my newly diagnosis or what he had said. But my mind went from good to bad in 0.4 seconds.
Today though, I stand in my truth. I am no longer scared, confused and in denial, but instead I am confident, sure, and have accepted what I have. Yes, I do have lupus, but I am not going to fight this lying down. And I will never give up without a fight. Because giving up goes against my grain!
