Marissa's Lupus Treatment Costs
Organized by: Marissa Mendiola
I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erytematosus in 2007. Following that diagnosis I have many other medical conditions secondary to Lupus. All requires very costly medical treatments. For those that don't know what Lupus is the easiest way I explain it is I have a monster living inside me that hates the inside of my body & wants to distroy everything inside me that is good. It will never go away and fights my inside all the time. It causes me to be so tired and I'm in pain all over my body all the time. So I have to take medications to calm the Monster down and it costs a lot to fight that Monster to keep it at bay. When the monster is sleeping I am happy. When it is awake I am really sick.
