Lupus is sneaky. It mask itself as several diseases. It is hard to diagnose, has no cure, and even more challenging to treat. No one experiences Lupus the same way. No doctor has quite figured it out. It is your body attacking itself.
Fatigue, joint pain, rash…the main symptoms, but there are so many more! Some that only appear when you get sick. Getting sick is tricky because it looks like a Lupus flare, but could be so much more just hard to tell.
So hug your friends with autoimmune diseases. Their pain and hurt is real and hard to share since they do not look sick, but feel sick all the time. Their good days are some of your worst. Stress is a trigger which some jobs and relationships are stressful all the time. Working out helps, but also makes you even more tired. You.just.can’t.win.
You have it long enough and you no longer want to complain, so make sure they do not have to…just love on them all the time.
