“Today I decided to smile”
For over a year I been experiencing pain not knowing why or what was causing me to hurt. A few doctor’s took a look at me and say I don’t see the problem, you look healthy lab work shows nothing. In December 2019, I went to a new doctor to try figure out what’s going on with me. At the Arizona Arthritis Specialist Rheumatologist Clinic the office did lab again for the 3rd time. The trip was worth it, they found out what’s going on with me. I am not happy about the results but at least I know and I have a treatment plan. I lost my grandmother 2 years ago to Lupus I watched her fight for years. I know and understand not how she truly felt.
Everyday is a struggle for me, I am grateful for the good days. I am blessed to have a great support from family and friends.
I am a Lupus warrior
Today I brought myself flowers!!
I am praying for more days like today.
