26 Apr My Lupus Story
For the past nine years I have struggled with lupus. Before that I went un-diagnosed for five years. In that time people thought it was all in my head including my doctor. My husband and children have all suffered as a result, and I have so much guilt for not being there for them. But now I have a better understanding of the disease and so do they. Together, we are in this battle with a unified front. Thanks to my family, the Michigan Lupus Foundation’s support groups, and better education, I am now handling this disease, and I can honestly say that I have lupus, but lupus does not have me!
