Lupus ….. It’s Real!!!

Lupus is an incurable long term disease that is not always visible. If not treated it can affect your major organs. Lupus.org states Lupus is a chronic (long-term) disease that can cause inflammation and pain in any part of your body. It’s an autoimmune disease, which means that your immune system — the body system that usually fights infections — attacks healthy tissue instead. Lupus most commonly affects your:

• Skin

• Joints

• Internal organs, like your kidneys and heart

Because lupus affects many parts of the body, it can cause a lot of different symptoms.

So many people are suffering quietly and I could not let this month pass without raising awareness! To all the Lupus survivors keep fighting. To my Aunt I love you, you are amazing and keep pushing on. To my mama’s whatever sickness or disease you may be fighting keep pressing forward and doing the best you can. You are a Blessed Mama and God will use you as a testimony, you are a walking miracle !! Continue to ask for Gods Grace!! To all my readers support this cause by rocking you purple this weekend to raise Lupus awareness and if it’s on you heart donate to Lupus Foundation of America!

This is my Aunt Glen after an Episode “I won’t give in….it will not get the best of me”.
