My Lupus Does Not Define Me

I was diagnosed with lupus in 2021 after 5 long months of pain and no answers. It was a relief to at least have a diagnosis. However, there’s been a huge learning curve that I did not anticipate. From sleeping patterns to eating habits and from pain management to energy levels.

Lupus journey

It’s been a hard journey. Basically getting to know my body all over again and figuring out what I can and can’t handle.

I’m grateful for my family’s support and the community around me that lifts me up in prayer and are willing to help I’m any way they can. Especially my husband, he’s been the best.

My heart goes out to all my fellow lupus warriors. You’re not alone and I see you.
