“What can I tell others who feel or say I don’t look sick?“ Be the Light 💡 —
Since 2009, I’ve struggled with having lupus. It started at a time where I was in college at Troy University. It was supposed to be “the best time of my life”. It was the worse. It was dark. I was 19/20 years old, going through a lot. I didn’t know what to do or how to be a college student or if I wanted to be alive. I actually spazzed out a lot during that time. I was really dealing with chronic pain, swelling, rashes, fatigue, depression and a number of other symptoms that people could not see or understand. I had very little support. I never seen people turn away from you when you needed them most until I was diagnosed with Lupus. But I also made lifelong relationships with people who love me and my lupus.
For those who have difficulty understanding me, this is what lupus looks like. I can be pretty on the outside, but on the inside, it’s ugly. However I push through it and continue shining ✨
Thanks Us in Lupus
