My Lupus Awareness Look
Hi friends! I'm sure you all are unaware but I suffer from a disease called lupus-- systemic lupus erythematosus to be exact.
I was diagnosed with lupus last year after knowing I've had it for years. Purple is our awareness color, so I found it only fitting to do a purple look (did this back in May, when it was lupus awareness month.. for some reason I forgot to post it here).
Lupus is a life-long, life threatening autoimmune disease that can affect any part of the body. It takes 8 years on average for someone to be diagnosed with lupus, and that's 8 years far too long. The key to living a long life with lupus is early detection, diagnosis, and proper treatment. Research and raising awareness are our only hope in finding a cure.
Lupus may sound like an exotic, rare disease, but it’s not one to be overlooked. Like many other life-threatening autoimmune diseases, it is important to know the early warning signs of Lupus so that any sufferers may begin battling it early on, even though it’s a very tough disease to identify.
