What if you woke up in the middle of the night with an unbearable wave shock of pains inflaming the entire lower portion of your body and try as you may, there was nothing you could do? What would you do if not even the doctors with all their trainings and certificates couldn't tell you why this happens or what to do? This happens to me sporadically. Lupus is an inflammatory disease caused when the immune system attacks its own tissues. Lupus Can Affect Any Organ In The Body & May Cause Varying Symptoms. Some people with lupus suffer from complications in their internal organs. Others from skin irritation. However, some of our most common issues are that our weakened immune system targets our joints causing excruciating pain and swelling. We have sun sensitivity and flares that come whenever they please. There are no specified known causes nor any known cures for this chronic illness and the treatment is minimal. I suffer from this and that's why it is so imperative to me personally, however, about 20000 men and women a year are diagnosed. Because there is so little knowledge on Lupus it takes about 6 years in most cases to even get a diagnoses. There are some who lost there lives because of complications with lupus due to lack of knowledge on how to control the systems the best way for them. Since, every case is different to each sufferer. This could be your mother brother aunt uncle sister or friend. So, I graciously ask that you find it in your heart to donate to this cause as the awareness and research can save so many lives. Thank you in advance. If you would like to follow my personal story feel free to follow me on Instagram @f.l.o.w.e.r.b.o.m.b.69
