Flight of the Butterfly Penny Partin
My journey began 32 years ago, diagnosed 27 years ago. and today, at 58 I continue my battles with health issues, because of Lupus. If I told you my story, you would hear Hope that wouldn’t let go. And if I told you my story, you would hear Love that never gave up. And, if I told you my story, You would hear Life, but it wasn’t mine. So, If I should speak, then let it be of the grace that is greater than all my sin; of when justice was served and where mercy wins! of the kindness of Jesus’ that draws me in.
I am one of the lupus warriors with the drug induced lupus. There’s not lot said about this one as much as the other ones. But, it’s as damaging to the body as the others. Had they caught mine in time I would have gotten over it in six months they said. But, the blood pressure meds had sent me into orbit and there was no coming
back around with lupus as a hitchhiker.
The best way I’ve found is to be treated as the problems arise! Like the diverticulitis that almost killed me 4 years go for I had to have a colonoscopy and the one that did pervaded my intestine caused my bowels to leak out. But, my body surrounded it so it didn’t rupture. This was a year from the time I had to have an ic pic in my arm to surgery to repair and then breaking open and wearing a wound vac for four months. This time last year, I had knee replacement and I couldn’t get up on my own without help.
I had a second surgery so they could bend my knee had to come home with a knee bender and therapy for six months. But, thank God today I can walk and climb my hill behind my house and walk stress off. I also have eye issues and get shots in my left eye. I’ve been having now to get them every 8 weeks. I hope others will see they need to be careful with medicine as it can hurt you! as well as help you!
Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him…If I told you my story, You would hear victory over the enemy. And if I told you my story, you would hear freedom that was won for me! And if I told you my story, you would hear Life that overcome the grave. If I should speak then let it be of the grace that is greater than all my sin; of when justice was served and where mercy wins. Of the kindness of Jesus’ that draws me in. Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him! For this is my story, and this is my song! Praising my “savior” all the day long… Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him…Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world 1 John 4:4 🙌 and this is my story, of my 30+ years! battling Lupus. ”Giving Thanks” for my story! Thanks for all you do!
