Warriors and Survivors

People call themselves lupus warriors. How can you engage in a battle without weapons, training and skill? You can’t! Fighting a war takes energy, strength and clear thinking. Lupus robs us of these things before fight even begins.
People call themselves lupus survivors. When you survive something, it is in the past. You made it through something horrible. You may have scars, but the event is over. Lupus is never over.
Hating lupus won’t chase it away. You might as well expect the color of your eyes or the shape of your nose to change by hating it.
When lupus takes up residence there is no eviction. Co-existence is the only option. Fighting takes energy. Direct the energy toward working for health instead of fighting against lupus. Co-existence is the key to success.
