Overview

Julie's Story, 'My Life With Lupus', sums up the challenges and struggles of a young woman's life in dealing with the very unpredictable disease, Lupus. Julie was a young and energetic twenty- four- year- old woman with her whole life ahead of her. Planning the wedding of her dreams to her college sweetheart and finishing her Master's degree in Social Work, life couldn't get any better!

Although life was headed in the right direction for Julie, her health had other plans. Julie began noticing vague symptoms which became bothersome to her studies. She hesitated to voice these problems due to the fact 'she looked fine on the outside'.

For a year, Julie dealt with ongoing fatigue and pain which was attributed to the stress of planning a wedding and working toward a master's degree.

Eventually, the symptoms worsened and Julie needed to seek medical attention. What would the doctors tell her? How would she react?

Ten years later, Julie is talking about how she coped through the challenges and got through the difficult days in dealing with lupus. "Life is a rollercoaster", Julie says. "It has its ups and downs, but you just have to take one day at a time. I feel God has blessed me with Lupus, so that I can reach out to others. My life could be a whole lot worse, and I've seen a whole lot worse".

Julie's Story, 'My Life With Lupus' has been written for all of those who suffer from an autoimmune disease. Especially the great friends I've made along the way. Some of the proceeds of this book will be donated to the Lupus Foundation to help find a cure for this very unpredictable, life-threatening disease!
