Top 5 Reasons I Write About Lupus (Day 4 of #HAWMC)

Today’s prompt was: “I write about my health because… Reflect on why you write about your health for 15-20 minutes without stopping.”

So without further ado, here are the Top 5 Reasons I Write About Lupus

#5     Even though House is always mentioning lupus, it is a disease that not enough people know about.

#4     I have always loved to write and find it very rewarding to write about a subject I know a lot about.

#3     Telling my story lets me give others a glimpse into what life is like for someone who has an invisible chronic illness.

#2     Writing about lupus allows me to be part of a wonderful community of health activists, lupus warriors, and spoonies online.

#1     Inspiring others brings me great joy. If one of my blog posts helps even one person with lupus live a more fabulous life, I will consider my words a success.

Take Care,

    I enjoy and appreciate your writings about lupus. I was a young mother of three (ages 7, 4 and 2) , and was attending nursing school when I was diagnosed with lupus. I was able to complete nursing school ( 5 years as opposed to 3 years), and eventually went back to school and got my bachelors in nursing. I am now retired/disabled after working in the nursing field for 26 years, and I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I stay strong and ask for help when need, plus I have a very strong family support system. I tell my children ( who watched my through my flares) that they can do anything that they desire.. I support their career choices and continue to encourage every step of the way.
