This Lupus Life

I am the dancer and Lupus is my music. I want to make it look beautiful

Sanctity of skin

Mehndi is an Arabic culture in which girls adorn their hands and feet with designs for social events. The designs are often done with henna and can be very intricate and varying in size.

It is quite beautiful in my opinion. So beautiful in fact, that I think I will be inspired in this direction for the next tattoo project I embark upon.

I am  young and I have 3 tattoos on my body. Now don’t go judging. I know you want to. I always said I would only ever get 3. But the thing is, and I’m sure you’ve heard it before, tattoos are addictive. I think it is becase staining your skin in such a personal way is very taboo, and a very big step. But once you’ve made the step over that line it suddenly isn’t taboo any more. And then a whole new world opens up to you.

So how do I get around the three tattoo limit? Easy. Elaboration. And don’t you think a colourful, Mendhi inspired paisley design down the inside of my foot would be marvellous? I do!

I am in my mid twenties and fighting my battles to discover who I am and where I fit in to this zany, beautiful world. I was diagnosed with Lupus in in 2008. This takes up most of my focus, as I want to share the experience of trying to live with and rise above chronic invisible illness, so to speak. I would like to stress very much the information regarding medications, medical procedures and illnesses are discussed from my point of view, and with my understanding, colloquialisms and metaphors. I do not attempt to be legally and precisely accurate for the general population, rather I try to be emotionally and descriptively true to my experiences. I hope I can help in understanding others with chronic illness by providing one more personal recount of just how spontaneous and difficult these lives really are. One day I hope to visit every continent, climb some pretty high mountains, sleep in an ice cavern, marry a wonderfully understanding man, have children and teach more children. Mostly, I just want a simple life, you know the house with a husband and kids. Oh, and no pain.
