Lupus Won't Defeat Me

I was diagnosed with SLE Lupus in 1997, at a young age.

Family planning and lupus

It impacted my life very hard but I fought through it consistently. I even held down a job down and all, but I had two miscarriages and that hurt a lot. I was never able to birth a child.


Now that I'm much older, my Lupus has continued to impact my life a lot. I can hardly do much because I have other autoimmune diseases with it now, but I stay strong and fight like the warriors that we all are.

Fighting through the pain

I will be 65 yrs old this year and I will fight through the pain every day and keep moving no matter what. It won't defeat me. I will defeat it...
