I needed to share something... by d.- on 2002-04-11 13:12:36
I have lupus and it's a bitch. I guess I'm mentioning it because in my own sideways way I hope to create awareness of this disease FOR WHICH THERE IS NO CURE. It's been hard for me to describe what this feels like -- biologically it's 'sort-of' like sickle-cell anemia, 'sort-of' like cancer and 'sort-of' like AIDS. It's in the blood. It's and auto-immune disorder and affects the connective tissue, and, since everything (except bone) is connective tissue it's everywhere all the time... I just this second saw a website which is very cool, and the author explains his experience with lupus through visuals. Go to: http://www.hamline.edu/lupus Then see: the journal of Ross Sonnenberg Peace, d.-

Jeez, I'm sorry to hear that. It tends to be harder on young women than on other populations. I hope you are taking care of yourself and getting treatment.
