I’m Kristin. I’ve had Lupus since I was 17. I started this blog in 2010 to be proactive in taking control of my health instead of allowing the lupus to control me. This blog is not only my own personal diary in dealing with lupus but a way for others to relate and share advice on having lupus in the working world. I’ve read plenty of other lupus blogs out there but most of the women are stay at home mothers. (I’m not judging anyone, I commend you on staying at home, considering I’d probably lock my pretend kids out of the house if I had a flare). But, this is for those of us that have to work, that want to work and pursue our dreams despite having an incurable disease. Because no matter how hard it gets, I don’t want to give up.
