Lupies,

I know that their are plenty of you who feel like you’re all alone in your daily battle with Lupus. I think that sometimes you all may wonder if you’re the only ones experiencing joint pain, embarrassing malar rashes or extreme headaches, but you’re NOT.

Don’t believe me?

Check the statistics ladies and gents…

“About 50 percent of systemic lupus erythematosus patients will have a neuropsychiatric disorder such as seizures, memory loss, headaches, or depression.”

You all are not alone in what you feel or go through. We are all human. We are all coping with this disease. Being healthy and then suddenly becoming sick is a BIG adjustment for anyone.

Extreme life changes can often leave damaging affects- depression, memory loss, etc.Whatever it may be, it’s okay to seek medical attention. Don’t ever feel ashamed. These issues are REAL. It affects thousands of people each and every day. Frankly, I the spirit of depresion has a way of falling on me from time to time. I often feel sad and alone and have negative, damaging thoughts. I have a difficult time knowing that my life has been altered and that it will never go back to the way that it used to be.
