Gifts for Someone Newly Diagnosed With Lupus
Last updated: August 2023
We celebrate birthdays, weddings, and baby showers with gifts. But why is it less common to give a gift to someone when they're going through a divorce, have lost a loved one, or were diagnosed with an illness?
Gifts for someone newly diagnosed with lupus
My friend was recently diagnosed with lupus. She already has a different autoimmune disease and food allergies, and she was devasted after being diagnosed with another debilitating health condition. To cheer her up, I got her a few things I hope she'll like. Due to her food allergies, I didn't include anything edible. I intend to wrap each gift so she can open them one at a time when she feels down.
Let's normalize giving gifts to friends and family to celebrate milestones and show our support when they're going through tough times.
How are you most likely to respond when someone offers you unsolicited advice about your lupus?
