I have Systematic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE or Lupus), an auto immune problem or disease and its affecting my blood. I got it from bad genes (on both sides of the family) and stress from school (I have messed up priorities- always pushing myself to be the best and disregarding my health). I am to have regular check-ups with my Hematologist and Rheumatologist. I am not allowed to go outside just yet because I can't be under the heat of the sun (from 9am - 3pm) and mingle with people. I can't eat salty foods and I have to be careful with the rest (take them in moderation). I have to stop drinking- seriously no more alcoholic beverages for me. I have to stop studying and I'm not allowed to work again just yet. Technically speaking, I'm living like a vampire (without its perks) right now.

Lupus or SLE is going to be a life-long sickness. There is no cure. The medications I am taking right now is just so that the symptoms will be repressed and hopefully my SLE will go on a remission. I don't know how long it'll take but I am not giving up. I will fight this and I will get better. Please continue to pray for me. Thank you.
