May 27th Lupus Fact
An extremely difficult diagnosis such as lupus can put you into so many emotional phases. Finding coping methods is crucial to keeping a happy life after being diagnosed with lupus. Some of the very first feelings include frustration, sadness, anxiety, and fear of what’s to come.
Sometimes, the mental and emotional effects of lupus can be related to the disease process itself or medications used to treat it.
Cognitive dysfunction, Depression and anxiety, Mood swings and personality changes may lead a person with lupus to speak with their doctor who may refer them to a mental health professional, who will be able to help them identify additional ways to cope with lupus.
This is your twenty-seventh Butterfly of Hope.
We need awareness! We need a cure!
Encourage everyone you know to let it FLY!
