Nobody likes to look at pictures of sick people on the internet. For my followers who don’t have Lupus or a chronic illness- sometimes you probably get sick and tired of seeing the graphic images of what we go through with Lupus and I’m sure even some have unfollowed me and that’s okay. To be honest I envy you because you can keep scrolling and shield yourself from all of this mess...but we don’t have that luxury. I have to walk around looking like this today and getting stared at whenever I go anywhere. I have to think about the best time to go to the grocery store when there will be the least amount of people because wearing a mask around food that people will eat gets you dirty looks like “what the hell are you doing here?”...When you have a rash like this and wear a mask people assume you’re contagious and avoid you like the plague. 😷🙅🏻‍♀️ So I’m using my platform today to spread some more awareness...the mask is protecting me from you, not the other way around. People with Lupus are not contagious and being near us won’t make you sick. So when you see someone who looks like me or is wearing a mask, instead of staring maybe try giving them a smile in passing and then just go about your day. You’d be surprised how much a smile from a stranger can brighten up our day. We don’t get very many of those looking the way we do. It’s a small gesture but for those 5 seconds it gives us a break from the pain and makes us smile. 😊💜💜💜 If you see someone who looks like they’re sick they’re probably having a much worse day than you. It probably took all the energy and courage they have to just leave the house so please be kind. ❤️ I know this is a little heavy for a Monday morning but it’s on my mind today as I’m thinking about the errands I need to run today and how much I’m dreading leaving the house looking like this. Thanks for listening. Stay strong my fellow warriors 🦋💪💜💜💜 #lupusawareness

The biggest thank you to everyone who reached out, answered questions, offered support and was just there for us after our car accident. I asked on instagram if anyone felt like accidents could make an illness flare and the tons of responses were incredible and exactly what I needed. Being that lupus and POTS flared for me, it was incredibly comforting knowing I was not alone and that it would pass. It’s tough flaring, especially after you’re doing so well. You can’t help but worry that it’ll last too long. However, due to rest, listening to my body, and everyone’s immense support, I was able to keep my mind in the right direction (for the most part) and I truly believe that helped me recover more quickly. 💜

This @vogmask is serving two purposes today:

1- Prevent me from eating ice cream on National Ice Cream Day🍦🍦🍨🍨 I have a sweet tooth but I also have too many prednisone/🍩🍪 chins right now soooo 🚫🍦🚫 2- Protect me from germs and airborne illnesses (for my newer followers- I’m currently on chemo and other immune suppressants for Lupus so I’m highly susceptible to infections and illnesses). 😷😷😷🙅🏻‍♀️ Totally dig this gay parrot mask color 🌈 (not the actual name of it lol), thanks to everyone who voted in my IG story and helped me decide which one to get! 🙌🦋💜 Side note: I definitely prefer the softer feel and ventilated mask over the disposable paper ones, I finally don’t feel like I’m suffocating in this Florida heat ☀️🔥😷😅 This Lupie gives #vogmask two thumbs up 👍👍 #lupusawareness 🦋💜 #gayparrot 🤣

Me going to attempt a light workout outside on this beautiful Saturday morning... 30 seconds later Florida be like ☀️☀️🔥🔥☄️☄️ HERE’S ENOUGH HEAT AND HUMIDITY FOR YOUR SKIN TO FEEL LIKE IT’S MELTING OFF 😑😑 45 seconds later: I walk my (sweaty from just standing there) ass back inside 😂😂 #nope #nottoday Let’s try an indoor workout instead lol
Today’s workout will be mostly dynamic stretching and some body weight exercises, my joints are super achy so I don’t want to add load to them with weights. Just gonna move and sweat a little bit and call it a day. 💪 Have to save some energy for my Saturday shenanigans haha 😈 well that’s if I make it to Saturday night- I sometimes have the best laid plans but thanks to Lupus end up in bed by 9pm like a total rockstar 🤘🤣🤣 Sooo🤞🤞I have enough energy to get into some trouble tonight! Enjoy your Saturday everyone! 🦋💜 #lupusawareness

Around this time 3 years ago is when I received a life changing diagnosis, I found out I had a Lupus and Sjogrens. This turned my world upside down. A few days before receiving the news I was enjoying myself in the pool for Fourth of July, battling how sick the sun would make me and confused with why I couldn’t bend my fingers. That is what ultimately sent me to a specialist and started my parade of 7 doctor appointments a week 😫I couldn’t accept being sick, I couldn’t understand why my body would attack itself this way. I was DETERMINED to find away. A way to relieve my pain, a way to live a normal life, a way to love myself again. During an appointment with a specialist (a Neurologist for my neuropathy) he gave me a lead to plant based living and a doctor that did this to heal herself from Lupus. That is when my mission began. I found the way to feel better now I just had to execute it.

In this picture you see a huge smile. I smile about being able to wake up in NO pain, I smile about being able to open a door knob, being able to open water bottles, the ability to turn my steering wheel and the ability to hold a pencil! Most recently, I smile about being out in the sun. Photosensitivity was one of my worst symptoms. This summer I ventured to the beach and am happy to say I had NO reaction. I smile about being symptom free from Lupus and Sjogrens. I smile about the second chance I was given. (a special thank you to @kishsawhp for being able to capture this)
I was able to do this through changing my lifestyle. I live a plant based lifestyle in what I eat, I make sure I get enough rest, I manage stressors, I workout, drink plenty of water and don’t consume anything processed.
If you have an autoimmune disease know that you can help yourself through lifestyle changes. You just have to give your body the tools to do so.
I am off now to shop for veggies, and play with my puppy 🐶😘 #goodbyelupus #lupusflarenomore #lupus #lupusawareness #lupusflare #lupuswarrior #lupusawarenessmonth #lupusproblems #lupussucks #lupusfacts #lupuslife #lupusfighter #lupuschick #lupussurvivor #lupusstrong #lupussupport #lupustruth #lupusadvocate #fucklupus #sjogrenssyndrome

UPDATE💜✋🏻: Day Five in a row I’ve had pain . I’ve gone to bed every night this week in pain . I have had to use my strong meds every night to just have my sanity . Even as I write this blog entry I am in severe pain and with tears in my eyes . I’m so sick of living in pain .

THE STRUGGLE IS SO REAL 😩 My fellow Lupies/Spoonies I know you know what I’m talking about! It’s extremely difficult to navigate this whole fitness with Lupus thing when I work in the fitness industry and am expected to look a certain way. But I’ll be honest, it was much more difficult when nobody knew I was sick and they didn’t know the reason or cause behind my drastic weight fluctuations and appearance changes (especially in my face). Now that I’m out about my disease there’s a better understanding but it still bothers me because I know what my body is capable of- not just appearance wise but also performance wise. I feel like a race car that is stuck in the garage. 🛑🚗🛑😞😡 (Not a super fast super cool race car, more like a demolition derby race car 🤣🤣 BUT STILL lol) ➡️ I’ve attached my 3 Lupie Warrior Codes (swipe left) which are my rules for exercising with an autoimmune diseases. These are extremely important to remember and take into consideration when working out. Us Lupies can’t work out like the rest of the normal healthy humans can, we have to adapt or it will cost us, and the price could be a flare or injury. If anyone has any questions on these please send me a DM and I’d be happy to answer them. Don’t give up my fellow warriors, stay strong and keep fighting 🦋💪💜💜💜 #lupusawareness

Caregivers need support too... They drive to appointments.
Spend hours in waiting rooms or hospitals. They pause before asking questions, they think twice before making statements; sometimes they suffer in silence and weep with helplessness. Sometimes they wish they could bear all the pain by themselves, so that their loved ones are spared. They sacrifice their own health and even share the financial burden.
Let's take a moment to recognize our caregivers and their concerns. This Saturday we are combining our Rancho and Riverside group for our most popular topic Support for the Support. Hope to see you there 💜

As a friend, family member, or caregiver for a parent, child, spouse, or other loved one with lupus, you’re likely to face a host of new responsibilities, many of which are unfamiliar or intimidating. At times, you may feel overwhelmed and alone. But despite its challenges, caregiving can also be extremely rewarding. And there are a lot of things you can do to make the caregiving process easier and more pleasurable for both you and your loved one. Let's share tips that can help you get the support you need while caring for someone you love in way that can benefit both of you.💜💜💁🏽‍♀️ .

@mduenas03 needs our help•••”Hello to the lupus community! Question: what do you use on your face when having a lupus flare!? My butterfly rash is out of control since yesterday. Scales, itchy, and burning. I can’t put on foundation because it becomes a cake on my face. It’s embarrassing to walk around like this and it’s utterly uncomfortable!! I moisturize all day with face cream but nothing soothes it or makes it better. I’ll appreciate any suggestions and try anything at this point!” #LF78 #lupus #lupusawareness #lupuswarrior #lupusfighter #lupussupport #lupuscommunity

Another tuesday, another infusion. I have to wear the same v-neck every time I go (because I don’t own any other v-necks), so I don’t have to take off my shirt each time I get my port accessed.
____
Today’s experience was great, my nurse was a sweetheart and didn’t have to poke me multiple times to access my port. Last time, I had a nurse in training who had to stab me multiple times (and dug a little) to access my port. My fibromyalgia makes my skin very sensitive to needle sticks, and getting a typical IV feels like a bowling ball is being shoved into my arm. So the less times I have to get pokes (port included), the happier I am!
____
After I got my port accessed, my mom took me to get my fingers and toes done, because one of my closest friends is getting married this weekend and I am healthy enough to be one of her bridesmaids. The nail technicians (who have been doing my fingers and toes since I moved to Alabama in April) all commented on how much better I look. They commented on how much weight I’ve gained, how my hair is finally growing back & how much better I look overall. I’m so proud of how far I’ve come in these last few months. It makes me wonder how much better I’ll be 3 months from NOW!

Supporting each other is very important ! Especially when we understand what we are going through when living with a chronic illness . Someone recently asked me to help them with a project recording a video answering a question . “what’s the hardest part of living with Lupus?” I felt honored I could help someone out not only do their project but spread awareness in any way possible . Even though I wasn’t feeling 100% myself I went ahead and recorded me answering the question in my opinion . I think it’s important to support one another when we can 💜✋🏻🥄🥄🥄 Comment Below : What’s the hardest part in your opinion of living with Lupus / Any Chronic Illness?? 💜💜 #LupusBlog #Lupus #LupusLife #LupusAwareness #LupusAdvocate #LupusSupport #LupusSisters #LupusPain #Lupie #LupieLife #LupiePain #Spoonie #SpoonieLife #SpoonieProblems #SpooniePain #SpoonieSupport #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #InvisibleIllness #AutoimmuneDisease

Welp I have an infection so this is what I need to wear now if I leave the house 😷...4 months ago before I started chemo my doctor told me if I am in public around people I need to wear a mask. I didn’t listen. 😑🤦🏻‍♀️ And so here we are...my lab results came back today and they are not good. The protein in my urine went back up and everything is elevated because of this infection. This explains why I’ve been feeling like absolute garbage lately and had such an extreme reaction after my last chemo infusion.
My medical team is communicating with each other today and I’m waiting to hear back on what the new treatment plan will be. I cancelled all my plans for the next few days and am going to quarantine myself. #lame #nofun 🙄
This is Lupus. You try to live your life, have some fun, do normal things, etc. and it’s okay for a little while but then Lupus says 🖕🖕and knocks you right back down. To say it’s frustrating would be the understatement of the decade. To be blunt and honest it’s a total mind fuck. One day you feel decent like overall you’re getting better/making progress and the next day you feel like you’re 90 years old and dying. For every step forward you take Lupus kicks you two steps back. It’s a vicious cycle and it’s a very difficult way to live your life.
I think it’s why my Lupie sisters and brothers and I are all so close, we understand and know how insanely difficult this disease is and we have endless amounts of empathy for each other. Honestly I don’t know what I’d do without all of you and also my supporters. Thank you for always having kind words for me. It really keeps me going on days like this. #fucklupus #lupusawareness 🦋💜

UPDATE 💜✋🏻: Day two of pain . Haven’t been in pain all day today but the strong pain meds I took left me dizzy and barely able to get up . And I cannot open my hands all the way . I’m just tired . Tired physically , mentally and emotionally . I’m tired of being in pain . I put on a strong face but sometimes being chronically ill gets to me and I’m just sick of living with Lupus . I’m just tired of all of it !! #LupusBlog #Lupus #LupusLife #LupusAwareness #LupusAdvocate #LupusAdvocacy #LupusWarrior #LupusPain #LupusProblems #LupusSupport #LupusSucks #Lupie #Lupies #LupieLife #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #ChronicallyIll #InvisibleIllness #AutoimmuneDisease #Spoonie #Spoonies #SpoonieLife #SpoonieProblems #SpooniePain #SpoonieChick

Both my hands are swollen I can’t open my left hand due to all the inflammation :( . And my hand pain feels like someone is stabbing me repeatedly .

Family💜Support💜
Pablo Casals, the world-renowned cellist, said, “The capacity to care is the thing that gives life its deepest significance and meaning.” When done in the right way, caring for a loved one can bring pleasure—to both you, the caregiver, and to the person you’re caring for. Being calm and relaxed and taking the time each day to really connect with the person you’re caring for can release hormones that boost your mood, reduce stress, and trigger biological changes that improve your physical health. And it has the same effect on your loved one, too. Hope to see you this Saturday for our very special support for the support group💜 .

I am happy to announce that I will be hosting my first Lupus Diary event this month. The aim is simple to raise awareness and provide support for people that have been/are affected by Lupus. Lupus is a horrible disease which quite honestly hasn't got the recognition it deserves. I would very much appreciate your attendance. Bring a carer, sister, brother, friend, husband, wife, uncle etc. After speaking with a lot of people it seems to be what people want. #lupusawareness #lupusdiary #lupuslife #lupuswarrior #lupusfighter #lupussupport #lupusawareness #lupusevents #autoimmunedisease #knowledge #lupusflare #lupus #lupusadvocate

manuka honey is one of my favorite ways to stay healthy or speed up healing. i’ve has a high success rate of staying healthy despite being around sick people if i take it before, after or both. it has higher nutritional value than typical raw flower honeys and has some unique enzymes with high antibacterial properties in addition to the natural hydrogen peroxide found in all raw honeys. various studies have also shown it to be effective for wound care, stomach issues and others. there’s a few different standards to rate effectiveness of manuka but only umf rating currently has 3rd party oversight. i’d recommend umf 10+ if you’re planning to take it daily & save the 15+ for when you’re feeling unwell. #naturalhealing #lupussupport #naturalmedicine #naturalremedies

Yesterday Estela Mata and Juana Mata Looms4Lupus attended the Assemblywoman Blanca E. Rubio and City of El Monte Parks and Recreation Health and Resource Fair. Eventhough it was 118 degrees, it was worth attending because we talked to children, pastors, mothers, caregivers and shared information and resources about Lupus.
Making a difference!

Ayer, Estela Mata y Juana Mata Looms4Lupus asistieron a la feria d4 Salud y Recursos puesta por la Asambleísta Blanca E. Rubio y Parques y Recreación de la Ciudad de El Monte.
