One year ago today, my sister was diagnosed with Lupus. For those that don't know, Lupus is an autoimmune disease where your immune system attacks your own healthy tissues and organs. Lupus can affect you in many different ways. For my sister, it effected her kidneys and central nervous system. Her health deteriorated so quickly, we were all devastated and terrified. I remember mentally preparing myself that if it came down to it, I would give up my kidney for her. As long as I get my sister back, it'll all be worth it.

One year later, you're stronger than ever. Working fulltime with a side gig, travelling, blogging/vlogging, cooking, hiking - just doing you. I can't stress this enough, but you are the strongest person I know. Life has definitely changed with all the medications and precaution you have to take, but you don't let that stop you. To have gone through all of that and walk out like a champ, you are an inspiration. No matter what happens in life, you will always have your family to rely on. You have my full support in everything you do. I love you sis 😘

It’s been 4 years today since the beginning of this journey.
Unfortunately so many people take their health for granted. After all, you don’t know what you have until it’s gone, right? But let me be proof, chronic illnesses do not discriminate, and there I was, about to turn 21, feeling like any quality of life I had was gone. I was diagnosed as chronically ill. My doctors informed me that my life would be a cycle of unpredictable flares, with just moments of remission. I was terrified. Sure it wasn’t the worst diagnosis in the world, but it certainly wasn’t one I wanted to identify with. I spent months daydreaming about what my life could have been like had lupus not robed me of normalcy. Wherever rock bottom was, I was definitely beneath it..
but, let me be clear, this post isn’t about the negative impact lupus has had on me. These days I focus on how thankful I am for the disposition I was given 4 years ago. I found a strength inside of me that I had no idea existed. I found a self love that I always wanted, and most importantly, I gained a new and healthy relationship with my body. I am not defined by Lupus, but I am physically, mentally, and emotionally stronger because of my diagnosis.
Instead of allowing my diagnosis to control and reduce me, I chose to let it empower me. I was hesitant to believe I could truly overcome lupus, but my health today is a testimony that I was able to recover and live a life better than I had ever anticipated.
Therefore, I am forever reminding myself, “Be a person of depth, of substance, be more than your chronic illness, be great, and never settle for less.” #overcomingchronic #lovealupie #beavisionary

My post on FB tonight... Too important to me not to share with my peeps here... Lots of 💜: This was by far the most difficult post I ever wrote apart from the death of my parents. I was afraid of people's reactions or more appropriately, their rejection. I experienced both. But, the positive support far outweighed the rejection.

In the last four years my journey with my mental health, lupus and fibromyalgia has seen highs and lows. I am happy to report that I have a great team of medical professionals and am doing better than I have in years. More importantly, I have met and surrounded myself with a great group of friends and fellow warriors!

It's also a joy to say that some of the relationships that were fractured have been repaired. I continue to feel the loss of those who for whatever reason could not make the journey with me - I know it's not easy. I will forever carry all of you in my heart - past and present. ~ bipolar/lupie/fibro love💜

My original post 4 years ago today:

I have an illness called bipolar. It is an illness of the brain. I have also been diagnosed with major depressive disorder and anxiety disorder.
I have been diagnosed for years and managed them with medication, therapy and good doctors. The side effects of this illness are too many to list. What I would like to say is this is not merely feeling sad or blue or something that you can pull yourself up by the bootstraps and fix. Like any illness sometimes you are able to manage the illness and sometimes the illness manages you.

I will no longer hang my head down in shame or hide this information from my friends and family. This is no pity party. I want to help erase the stigma of mental illness! Check out more at www.bringchange2mind.org

This is by far the most nerve-wracking but yet courageous post I've ever made publicly.

Happy and healthy thoughts to you all!
