About This Blog

Hey guys, this is my blog about living with Lupus and Fibromyalgia - which if you don’t know both are really crappy, life-long, chronic and painful illness (please see page titled 'What the feck is Lupus?' for more information) Here I will document the highs as well as the lows and even the really shitty bits that no one tells you about.  I want this to be as real as real can be so be prepared for some brutal honesty.

Don’t fret! It's not all doom and gloom as I am a very positive person and often find ways to laugh in face of Lupus - as I like to put it - 'I am not Lupus' Bitch - Lupus is MY Bitch!' 

At the time of writing, I am 28 years old.  I live in London in England (well just outside) with my fiance, Sami.  We've been together for around 6 years and he is my rock.  He looks after me he does. I CANNOT wait to marry him!

When I was first diagnosed I thought to myself,  "Right ok, so I have Lupus, that’s fine it wont affect me, I'll just carry on as normal" 

I was in complete denial.  I did carry on as normal for a while but now I've decided my health is more important.  I've learnt to expect less of myself and of others.  I think they call it Acceptance - it took me a couple of years but I go there in the end.

I do what makes ME happy now.

Although I fight this crazy fucktard of an illness on a daily basis, I remain positive and happy.  I still enjoy life as much as I can and everyday I write a reason why I should be happy.  I think this is what keeps me sane - try it out.

I hope you enjoy my blog and I hope it makes you smile =0)

Cheers to my fellow lupies and supporters xxx

Thanks for tuning in - it means a lot to me x
