This is what love looks like - my 6 year old angel of a daughter sleeping on the bathroom floor next to me at 4:30 am. One of my many sleepless nights due to a lupus flare up. Generally 4-6 hours of me curled up in a ball of excruciating pain. Vomiting, hives, skin rashes, among other not-so-pleasant side affects. She knows how scary these episodes can get for me and didn't want me to feel alone. I cherish these moments, as it makes me feel proud to be a mother. Especially to have such a kind, loving and caring little soul as a child. This post is to bring awareness to the invisible illness that so many other women struggle with on a daily basis. Days of debilitating pain, fatigue, and anxiety that make even the smallest tasks difficult. My love goes out to all the other fighters who understand what it's like to struggle getting out of bed in the morning yet still somehow manage to get up, go to work, cook, clean, parent and show this disease that we can kick it's ass. You're all amazing. It's also a reminder to others to not judge a book by its cover. People may look healthy & happy, but you never know what someone is going through so we should always be KIND and practice compassion towards others. Life is short, for some more than others so spread the love. ๐Ÿ’œ #love #lupus #lupusawareness #lupuswarrior #lupusstrong

"I'm a male with lupus which is rare for it's considered a women's disease. Have had symptoms for a good 8 years. About a year and a half ago I had a real bad attack. Lost all movement on my right side... arm and leg would not move and I could talk, this lasted about 15 min then would slowly go away. Real scary to go through. MRI showed a very large mass in my brain on the left side. Was in the area that controls motor functions on the eighth side of my body. Was the size of 2 golf balls side by side. Dr's say it's inflammation. It's a terrible disease that we all need some kind of cure. Good health to all. Be strong and it's just 1 day at a time." - @maxum101

I am not my scars. I am not this disease. I am strong. These are finally healing, but they're a constant reminder of this ugly disease and honestly some days I feel defeated, some days are harder than others and I really just have to keep reminding myself that I can't stop fighting. I can't let this take control of me. I need to remember that I am stronger than I think. #MyBattleScars #MyJourney #LupusWarrior #LupusStrong #Tallawah ๐Ÿ’œ

So many people take their lives for granted & wonder why their blessings are being blocked... You should wake up every day thanking the lord that you're healthy, able to work, go to school, walk on your own, bathe yourself, not be on 10 or more different medications every day, undergo dialysis, chemo or radiation, or simply just bc you woke up this morning. Learn to be humble & grateful bc many of people don't have the luxury of being capable to do these things. Note to many: JUST BECAUSE YOUR LIVING WITH A CRONIC ILLNESS DOES NOT DEFINE YOU "HANDICAP". NEVER USE YOUR ILLNESS AS A CRUTCH! ALWAYS STAND ON YOUR OWN TWO FEET. Yes, your I'll; but that does not define who you are. If you don't stand up to fight, how will you ever know if your capable of wining the battle? #LsUp #LupusStrong ๐Ÿ’œโœ‹๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’œ P.S. I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A SERIOUS LUPUS FLAIR UP WHEN I DID THIS PHOTO SHOOT. #PokerFaceOn YOU WOULD'VE NEVER GUESSED IF I HAVEN'T TOLD YOU.. Live For Today, Because Tomorrow Is Not Promised. Stop taking life for granted and mold yourself ๐Ÿ”‘๐Ÿ”‘๐Ÿ”‘

When I first tried these I couldn't even do 2 without stopping, 10 was a struggle. I cussed and I cried, I got so upset I didn't want to talk or joke around that day. But I was told to not let it get to me, and still someone made me do them anyway! Trust me all whining falls on deaf ears with @forehand27 So I started practicing at home and now look what I can do! Now on to these push ups! #lupusstrong #nevergiveup

In the last month, I've fought a battle with myself. I've struggled a lot with my own thoughts, self-image, and confidence. One of the biggest challenges Ive faced in my life is my battle with Lupus. It's something I'm often embarrassed to talk about, and it's something I've always battled in silence-but I've decided not to anymore. Today I decided to be proud of myself. I'm proud of my perseverance no matter how sick I feel. I'm proud of my body, and how it fights. Never let looks fool you, everyone is fighting a battle you may never know about. And today I've decided to be a little prouder of mine, and smile a little more. #lupusawareness #lupusstrong #lupus

Sure did... ๐Ÿ’œ I can think of so many things when hearing these words made me say "why me" but I know why... God gives his toughest battles to his strongest warriors!
Learning I had Lupus changed my life... I've always known I was a strong person, but Lupus has taught me to Love myself more, be patience, spend time with those I love, enjoy the little things, kindness, saying hello to a stranger, singing in the rain, worry less, learning new things, long conversations, laugh out loud, laugh at myself, dance when people are watching, and more than anything gratitude.
I didn't chose Lupus, I was chosen... it's not the easiest thing to endure but somehow God knew that I could handle it, even when I didn't ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿฆ‹ #yougavelupus #lupusstrong #lupusawareness #gratitude #laughoutloud #laughatmyself #enjoythelittlethings #selflove #thankyourGod #monicamorris #fashionfightslupus
