My Life with Lupus and Other Annoying Things: A Personal Story of Struggle, Triumph and Faith

I never thought I was going to die. My mind and faith wouldn't allow me to go there but I was very fearful that my baby might die. My Life with Lupus and other annoying things tells the story of how the disease affected my life and my family along with the other illnesses that were associated with Lupus. There were some days before my treatment started that I just wanted to stay in bed because my joints caused me too much pain. Through the support of some amazing doctors and my family I discovered there can be a wonderful life during and after lupus and that healthy babies can be born to mothers with Lupus. Wonderful progress has been made in the treatment of this disease and it is my hope and prayer that some day medical researchers will find a cure.
