Today all over the world individuals, their families and friends are focusing just a little more on the auto immune disease lupus so I would like to ask you a favour. I know that you have a busy lifestyle so I promise not take up too much of your time.
For those of you who don’t know lupus is a condition whereby the body’s immune system goes into overdrive and starts to attack itself. The symptoms are many and varied and the illness seems to mimic other diseases. This gives rise to difficulty in diagnosis and the condition can be overlooked, sometimes for years, unless the GP or consultant is alert to lupus.
As someone living with this condition, it is just as hard to deal with and to understand but I am not asking you for sympathy. I am simply asking that you spare a thought for me and others like me who are challenged on a daily basis by this condition and associated complications.
I can send you an email of a man walking the world for lupus that you can share with your family, friends and colleagues. If you are interested please send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org with walking in the subject line.
Thank you your support is much appreciated.
