L is for Lupus
I HATE Lupus!! Its LIFE-changing and slowly wearing my mother down. If you type in Lupus in Google you will see this:
Lupus: Also called: SLE, systemic lupus erythematosis
An inflammatory disease caused when the immune system attacks its own tissues
That butterfly rash you see- its painful. The rash can be on top of your head and inside your nose and places that are tender.
I got the rest of this pictures from Pinterest. There's a lot of information out there.
My mom has had some terrible seizures and her depression is like no other. She used to never suffer from depression. The headaches are downright crippling. She cant get out of bed sometimes from her head hurting so bad.
My dear friend and blogger Marla has Lupus and her posts have helped me tremendously on understanding what mom lives through. Its called Luck Fupus and you will love her honesty. Go visit her and tell her I sent Ya!
