Flight of the Butterflies, Butterflies of Hope Warrior Stories is dedicated to sharing those stories in May for lupus awareness month.
Flight of the Butterfly Leila Muxinga
My name is Leila Muxinga and I was diagnosed with Lupus at the age of 14 and this is my story.
Back before I got diagnosed, I was misdiagnosed for about 2 years by a doctor who passed on a while ago, he was our family doctor. Later on I got referred to my current physician, who is a Specialist Dr. Goagoseb and he officially diagnosed me with SLE in 2010.
I went through a lot of bullying. I was bullied by the very same people whom I thought were my friends and best friends.
I was bullied for how my fingers were shaped, how they were blue/purple, how I would be in and out of the hospital. They talked about how nasty they thought I was.
But to my high school friends, the true friends , Ralitza Gawises, Bernelee Kahiiko and Trisha Skrywer, I just want to use this opportunity to thank you guys. I love you all still today.
So to make things short, I have been living with Lupus for over 13 years. I am legally disabled, but I have my own company and I am my own BOSS.
I just want to thank the all mighty, my King in Heaven and His one and only begotten Son Jesus Christ for His mercy and His grace. Without Him, I wouldn’t have Hope.
Today I have my own Lupus Support group on WhatsApp and also a Christian group whereby I plan on motivating the young people.
