Swipe #LupusAwarenessMonth. Challenge Accepted @_indianrosee .My battle with Lupus started August 17, 2016. This was after 6months of treating Malaria, Fatigue, Chest pain, Pneumonia, blood works, Joint pain, Connecting tissue disorder,Anemia. Honestly, it hasn't been easy, expensive drugs, injections, IVs, doctor's appointments, hospital trips, depression, brain fag, bad sights, purple/blue fingers during cold weathers (Reynaud's), swollen feet, suicidal thoughts,weight gain, sleepless nights. My family and a few friends (Uwa and Idanesi - God bless you) has been my reason to keep fighting. So many cut ties with me cos they thought "I was gonna die" Lol. "God doesn't give you what you can't handle" this statement keeps me going. I'm grateful for life, family, close friends and the ladies of #LupusRefuge (my support group). I'm doing this for a friend who lost the #Lupusbattle in Sept 2016 because her Pastor said she should stop taking her drugs.
I cry when I'm weak, I pray to show I'm grateful, I laugh to show I'm alive, I live because this pain will not win. I hope one day a cure is found and/or our drugs are subsidized cos this shit is EXPENSIVE. #lupusdoesnotdefineme #lupusdoesnothaveme
