In some places, October is also dedicated as Lupus Awareness Month.
Is that overkill? For those of us desperately waiting and hoping for a cure, there's no such thing as overdoing it!
So here's some of my lupus awareness images - feel free to copy and paste all over social media and anywhere else. Or copy someone else's images, whatever it takes to raise awareness of what life is like with this condition.
You can find more images to help promote lupus awareness at lupus.cheezburger.com, and on many of the sites on the Lupus Links page.
Of course, pre-made images are an easy way to gently raise awareness. There are many other ways. If you're brave enough, why not make a point of telling others what your life really is like.
