I pollinated my self-esteem and got back out there! My mother was scared, my father was too, but I was complacent. Managing a new lifestyle was forced on me and I decided to not only manage it, but master it. This is where I am today!
One of my favorite quotes of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is, “Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.” I got up. I got out. I got back to being me! Because I was so blessed to regain my sanity, I knew I had to help others learn to walk with journey with lupus in tow. I do not regret the fact that I was diagnosed. I accept it and decided to take this as a sign that I was meant to show others that life can still be lived —as best you can!
Adversities will come, complications will happen, but if anything is going to happen, we have to learn how to make it happen happy. Psalm 91:15 – “He will call on me, and I will answer him.” I admit that it is not easy, but I’m willing to learn from each step that I must take. Because I know, first hand, how Lupus can distort your outlook on life, I wanted to help others navigate through the disease’s complications. Yielding to the calling to help empower others…

The strongest medicine I continue to take everyday is Faith. The malleableness of this has allowed me to continue to develop my passion in my life. I hope to continue helping others along this Lupus journey with
Empowerment to push beyond the past.
Passion and empathy that supports growth from the heart.
Stories that remind you to be the best you that you can be.
Togetherness that encourages sharing quality information.
Power comes through understanding the value of quality information. I have come to realize that through the lessons I share and the tips that I have given, that those experiencing what I am experiencing with lupus, want to be happy, living their best life, and reaching their goals, despite their circumstances.
I am so happy in helping others! I do believe that is one of things that keep me going strong. I yearn to help others tell their story about living with lupus in hopes of helping the next person. Every story is a testament to how different lupus is in each and every one that is diagnosed with this complex illness.
The Lupus Liar is a personal stand I take and hold. I mean to offend no one but to encourage myself to continue to believe that lupus is a lie in terms of controlling me (“…and calleth those things which be not as though they were.” ~Romans 4:17)
