Raising Lupus Awareness

I stumbled across this YouTube and watched it through my tears.

Welcome to my life, too, without quite getting to the seizures and total systemic shut-down phase of lupus quite yet.  Mine is, mercifully, under control with plenty of adequate rest when I can make it happen, healthier diet as often as possible and reduced stress where I can as well.

But it takes conscious effort every day to make that happen for myself, and most of all for my family.

Take care of yourself and the people you love.

And if you know someone with lupus?  Offer to lend a hand when they look tired -- we're not often good at asking for it, but it is always appreciated.  Especially if it coincides with a day where we could really, really use a nap.
