Today, May 10th, is World Lupus Day. Typically I'm exhausted, but I wanted to share some facts about my illness with you all.
Lupus is an illness which affects your immune system, basically causing it to not recognise what it should be attacking from the good things- so it attacks bones, organs and tissue instead. For me it affects my hips, knees, ankles, wrists, kidneys and mental health, to name a few. There's no cure for Lupus but it can be controlled with medication and care. A main trigger for Lupus is heat and sunlight, which can cause a flare.
