Lupus is a rare disease that is commonly misunderstood. Detecting, diagnosing, and treating Lupus can prove challenging as the symptoms appear sporadically and many times seem unrelated. Patients that have Lupus face difficult circumstances as they “don’t look sick,” yet our bodies are working hard to fight the disease. The mental toll is exhausting trying to balance inward symptoms with outward appearances. With sound medical support, patients are more likely to receive the help they need. After suffering from the symptoms and wondering why I didn’t feel right, I was rejoiced to work with a physician that could properly diagnose and treat my Lupus. It is wonderful to return to activities I enjoy and feel more like myself again.
