Health Blogging Month Day 29: Lupus Greeting Card

Greeting card post! The greeting card industry is all about writing generally universal feelings in a presentable way that you can use to express yourself when you just can’t think of the words to say.
Write a greeting card for someone in your community to help them express themselves about a new diagnosis, treatment, or experience.

Well, you know the front cover of this card has to be my snarling lupus wolf.

Now, what verse to put inside the card?  What says what it's like to discover you have lupus? Let's try this?

I'm a little shocked right now
but I'm still glad to know you care.
I thought I could trust my body,
but it has let me down.
I had a whole life planned,
and now it has all changed.
It isn't what I wanted,
but it's what I need to learn to live.
Thank you for being there for me now - 
and please be with me as I learn to live with lupus.
I don't know what's ahead of me
but I know I'll need good friends like you.

  1. Thanks for the great lupus information! I have been fighting with my SLE lupus symptoms for many years and it's good to hear positive words from others with the lupus disease.


Thanks for being part of the conversation.
