I was diagnosed with lupus at the age of 19. It was a devastating blow, and I was determined to not let it define me. I learned everything I could about the disease and how to manage it, and I made a commitment to living my life to the fullest.
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can affect many parts of the body, including the skin, joints, and internal organs. It is a complex disease, and there is no cure. However, there are treatments available that can help to manage the symptoms and improve quality of life.
I have been fortunate to find a treatment plan that works for me, and I am able to live a relatively normal life. However, I know that lupus can be a very challenging disease, and I want to offer some tips and advice to others who are living with it.
