I have lupus, an autoimmune disease, and I also suffered from PTSD. I write about these topics to share what helped me and let you know that you are not suffering alone. Mental illness, chronic diseases and disability are so stigmatised. They shouldn’t be. Talking openly helps.
I’ll do my best to give support and advice, but I do struggle myself too. Each day with lupus is different: I have good days and bad days.
You can also find me on The Mighty, a great online community for chronic illness, mental health and disability. I also occasionally write personal essays on Medium.
