What is lupus, what are the symptoms, and how is lupus treated?
I was in my forties when I first heard the word lupus. My neighbor came over one day after her doctors appointment and told me she had lupus. I thought she was kidding. I had never heard of lupus and the closest thing I could relate this word to was lupine or wolf like. I laughed and asked her if she was going to turn into a werewolf.
My neighbors life became one battle after another with this disease. Lupus won the final battle.
