My Lupus Journey

I was an electrician. I can no longer do that because I can't remember it, and my body will not hold out. It takes all my energy to make it through the day.

Losing everything

I felt like I was losing my mind, my body, everything. I fight every day to be me, just me. BUT I have started working out, eating healthier, and going to quit smoking.

Appreciating the little things

It's made me realize I took a lot for granted. Now I enjoy all the little things every day. I smile more even on the worse days. I may have lupus but it will never have me. I will not give up the fight.
