I recently stumbled upon a wonderfully done item on the New York Times web site about lupus. In “Patient Voices: Lupus” from December 16, 2010, the Times hosts a series of six different lupus patients, as they briefly tell their own stories in audio slide show format. The discussion begins with a young science writer who learned she had lupus, and includes the interesting perspectives of a man and a lovely young teen with lupus.
I heartily recommend this lupus presentation to every lupus patient. It may greatly encourage you to hear the candid stories and inspiring perspectives. You may find, like I did, that you relate very closely to aspects of their stories similar to your own experiences.
This site is also a “must see” for anyone who is connected to a loved-one, friend or co-worker with lupus. As these lupus patients tell their stories, you may be able to better understand someone near you who has lupus.
Take a few minutes and check out this extraordinary and edifying piece about lupus! You will be glad you did.
