This Lupus Life

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

365 Project: 03

Australia is such a beautiful place. Sometimes it is unbelievable how much there is to see in the little slices of nature that are all around us. Sometimes it seems like the views are taken for granted.

So many people in Perth drive along the ocean daily on their way to work or study. So many people take routes through the outer bush lands, or along the Swan River. So many opportunities to view the city are lost behind phone screens or the unfocused eyes of someone trying to ignore the person who is standing a little to close for comfort on the train.

I work across from Cottesloe beach and some mornings I leave a little early so I can stop in and sit on the shore for a while, enjoying the view. Some mornings there are paddlers, runners, dogs. Some mornings the wind is strong and the water is choppy. Some mornings I even take Wardog out and go for a quiet paddle.

This week I planned my morning stop over to coincide with a paddle demo with some of the international Starboard crew. Sadly, the best photo I took this morning was of the storm rolling in over the port.

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.
