Just a note to say lupus sucks!!!
Most of you know that I share my body with lupus. For the most part I have lived a pretty normal life. "MY NORMAL" lupus has taken a toll on my body and the older I get the harder the flares are. This flare that I am in now is really trying to kick me around. I am a fighter and even though I won't win the lupus war I will win as many battles as I can.
For those of you who share your bodies with lupus you know what I am talking about. For those of you who don't know what lupus is; well in the easiest terms lupus is an autoimmune dis-ease where the body's immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissue. This results in symptoms such as inflammation, swelling, and damage to joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, brain, central nervous system, female organs and of course blood. This happens because a body with lupus can't tell the difference between the good and the bad. Your body actually attacks itself.
