I used to wake up every morning hurting, aching, wishing and praying. Everyday was a struggle. Every step was a challenge. And I was only 15.
Now, at age 31 I have come to appreciate life and realize that although I am in pain, I am blessed enough to wake up. No one is promised tomorrow and through the pain I see the bigger picture.
I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosis at age 15. It was a hellava way to start high school. I will tell my story in my next post. The month of May is dedicated to Lupus Awareness and so is this post.
