What does it feel like to have Lupus? I try to put it into words and compare it to something the average healthy person can relate to. But please be aware that our normal is not the same as your normal- we have adapted our life to a “new normal” which means using our limited energy to function and appear fine despite the 24/7 pain and exhaustive fatigue that we deal with. There is never a break and pharmaceutical drugs do not give us relief, they pick up the slack where our immune system and organs have failed us just to keep us alive. If you know someone with Lupus they are most likely living day to day in constant pain and exhaustion but have learned to adapt and function despite it. Living with Lupus doesn’t ever get easier, WE JUST GET STRONGER. Keep fighting my fellow Lupie Warriors 🦋💪💜💜💜 #lupusawareness
