Has lupus ever made you feel like a burden? Many members of MyLupusTeam share the feeling. “I don't understand this disease so I know it's difficult for other people to understand,” a member of MyLupusTeam wrote. "Without visible symptoms, family and friends don’t know what we're going through," another member commented. “I wish a light would appear so others knew the internal turmoil of this chameleon!” Members living with lupus derive great comfort from the supportive community on MyLupusTeam. “I share a lot of my recent or deepest feelings here for you all to read, maybe get a giggle, or just a brief reprieve from our suffering and stress,” one grateful member shared. Another member reassured: “We get it. We’re here for you. There’s no magic spell that fixes things, but the love we have for each other has great power!”
