May 10th 2016 is World Lupus Day. The perfect day to spread awareness!
We all have our lupus stories and I’ve told mine many times. If you haven’t told yours, perhaps today is a good time to let those around you know a bit more about living with such a complex illness.
I’m not expecting to see too much coverage about World Lupus Day because we have such a long way to go in getting the media to publicise Lupus. However, this year Lupus did get a boost with Selena Gomez admitting to her diagnosis. With 78+ Instagram followers, she did an amazing and very brave thing and I know a lot of us were grateful to see her someone use their influence for a good cause.
I hope today is a pain-free day for us all.
