Yes. If you have it. You know it. Living with lupus is a real pain in the ass! Not only do you have to deal with the intense pain, aches, hair loss, extreme exhaustion, brain fog, rashes, and a literal plethora of other symptoms, you also have to deal with people. Yes, people. People who do not have lupus.
If you have lupus, then you know exactly what I mean. They don’t get it. At all. Like seriously. They can’t see it, so they don’t really understand it. And, you can’t really define it, because it’s a completely bipolar disease that is totally different for each of its victims!
And people…. ugh. They have opinions, judgements, unsolicited advice, and really just don’t realize how horrible you feel. All. The. Damn. Time.
And for the record:
NO. We are not lazy, faking, dramatic, or making it up. It is real, incurable, and it fucking sucks! Our bodies are literally attacking themselves every minute of every single day.
