Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.

The Lupus Loop

It is often hard for people who don’t have lupus to understand the experiences of lupus patients.  It is comforting to hear how other lupus patients handle common situations.  We are very excited to welcome our new volunteer blogger Allie.  Allie is a friend of the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation and will be sharing her own personal experiences with lupus on the blog, The Lupus Loop.  Check out her first post here!

Learn how Allie handled being diagnosed with lupus and tell us about your own experience when you were diagnosed.

Having a rough morning? Place your hand over your heart. Feel that? That’s called purpose. You’re alive for a reason; don’t give up.

Lupus - A Devistating Autoimmune Disease and Why You Should Care

                                          Why You Should Care

A Public Health Issue

  • Lupus is widespread, affects 1.5 million Americans
  • Lack of awareness, knowledge, diagnosis, safe and effective treatments

A Women’s Issue

  • 90% affected are women - mostly in childbearing years, ages 15-44
  • A leading cause of kidney disease, premature cardiovascular disease, heart attack and stroke among young women

A Racial Disparities Issue

  • Black, Hispanic, and Asian women experience two to three times the incidence, more serious complications and higher mortality than Caucasians

A Research Issue

  • To date: No known cause of cure
  • Only one new treatment approved in over 50 years
The person who says something is impossible should not interrupt the person who is doing it.
