Putting it on For Lupus

LA POP 5Putting on Purple we “POP” for lupus today,
About lupus awareness we have something to say!
Supporting our sisters with lupus this way,
Until there is a cure to take lupus away.

LA POP 1We’ve rounded up purples and violets and hues,
Until there’s nothing purple that we cannot use!
Donning purple and orchid and grape in bright array,
We show off our outfits on the Seventeenth of May!

LA POP 2Join us in spreading the word all around,
Lupus is auto-immune and everywhere found.
Especially in women, and in minorities we know
That lupus is always more likely to show.

LA POP 3Help us today, all your colors display,
Pursuing the cure that will end our dismay.
Raising awareness and spreading the word,
Until all who have lupus can someday — be cured!

Lupus Truth No. 17 – Drug Induced Lupus is Reversible

Coping with Lupus: Drug-induced lupus is a lupus-like disease caused by taking specific prescription drugs.

Drug-induced lupus is reversible!

The Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) reports that “drug-induced lupus accounts for about 10 percent of all lupus cases and is caused by high doses of certain medications. The symptoms of drug-induced lupus are similar to systemic lupus; however, symptoms usually subside when the medications are discontinued.”

To learn more about this lupus fact, please read my post from  May 17, 2012.
