"After years of feeling like I need to be better, stronger, healthier, and in control, I now know I am enough." -Member of MyLupusTeam
Members of MyLupusTeam experience the burden of lupus physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Sometimes we strive to appear healthier than we are to avoid the stigma of lupus. Other times, we experience relief and support from peers who've been in our shoes.
"I'm getting out of the rat race. I'm not hiding my pain anymore. If I'm tired, I'm going to rest. Hearing from others with lupus has taught me that I have to prioritize ME." -Member of MyLupusTeam
Here are recent conversations from members on MyLupusTeam:
"Another day to share, love, support one another. Grateful for the support. No matter what pain levels we reach, we will rise and NEVER GIVE UP!!! Our hope can be captured when the inner voice says "you're brave!"
