I'm sitting here reflecting (like we all do at the end and beginning of the year) and like always, my emotions are mixed, but I am happy. I made it to 2020! How thankful and grateful I am! On this journey, I've talked mainly about that one thing that affects my life most, Lupus. However, there have been so many other things that have affected my life on top of that. I know many times I may make it look as if having Lupus is easy. I just have to take some meds, rest, eat right and I'm straight!
Lupus isn't that easy. Lupus isn't an illness that you can "prevent". Now can resting and eating healthier lower the chance of a flare? Of course! But sometimes, even when you do all of those things, Lupus is right in your face trying to make a point. The LupieGirl has not been perfect and that is the overall point of this post.
I get asked all the time about my dating life and I am here to clear the air that I DON'T have one.
Trust, The LupieGirl longs to have bae be right there, supporting me and whatnot but as of right now, bae is non-existent. Dating is hard and I believe having a chronic illness makes things a tad bit more difficult. No worries though. I like it here. It may just not be the time and that’s okay. Many have asked me about marriage and children and I truly want all of that. But I need a guy that truly wants me, supports me and will grow with me.

An estimated 1.5 million Americans and 5 million people worldwide are living with lupus.
