The 12 Days of “LupMAS”

We know the holidays can bring on extra stress. Therefore, it’s important to find the comedy in it all. After all, laughter can soothe the weary soul. Lupus is crazy with tense moments. It can seem like they are new issues when in fact, they are all the same. The days leading up to Christmas can be a whirlwind of busy. Hence, the 12 days of “LupMAS,” better known as the 12 days when lupus does the most. I’m sure every lupus warrior can relate, so sing-a-long with me.
