How About a Lupie-lympics?

My medal collection (pre-lupus)
Well, I didn't watch the Olympics, and I'm not going to watch the Paralympics either. I'm sure it's all very inspirational stuff, with people overcoming their disabilities to do things I wish my body could do.

Can I propose a variation on the olympic theme for people with lupus?

The first rule would be that anyone who managed to get out of bed and turn up for an event should immediately qualify for a gold medal.

Events would include some that require real skill - like pill sorting, some that take endurance like marathon napping, some that require endless patience like waiting for the appointment with the rheumatologist. I think I could also do quite well at a coffee-drinking event.

  1. Love this idea! You all do deserve a gold medal for all that you accomplish every day despite the challenges lupus puts up in your way!

    Congratulations for today's achievement!
