I came across those who were blogging about their lives and I thought, "Well if they can do it, so can I!" So I did and A Lupie Existence was born! Now because I tend to have an all-or-nothing type of personality, I not only created a new blog, but a Facebook page, a Twitter account, a Tumblr account and even adjusted my old MySpace account and YouTube page to the Lupie cause! It gave me something to do with the seemingly endless hours of time I all of a sudden had on my hands and I welcomed this new experience, the new people it brought into my life, and the new sense of usefulness.
ith the aid of Jehovah God's holy spirit, the love and support of my family and friends, and the stubborness I battle deep within myself, I am stronger today than I have ever been; no matter the weaknesses in my physical body! I have learned that I can withstand disease, abandonment, harsh critism and the uneducated judgement of some and still maintain a genuine smile on my face and laughter in my mouth!
I have come to realize from getting the chance to get to know some really wonderfully kind and supportive people, that I and my dear mother are not alone in fighting the battle of auto-immune disorders. If you are reading this and you battle ill health of any kind I hope that the experiences, some of my deepest held feelings, and the loopy stories I have laid out in this blog can help you in some small way; if only to put a smile on your face but for a moment.
I believe that today IS a gift and while for me, and millions of others, it is a Lupie existence, its one I've chosen to live thankfully!
Thanks for reading!
