This Lupus Life

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

Often during the week I take some time in Cottesloe to breathe in the sea air and gather my thoughts.  My dear Marie lives in Cottesloe by the railway tracks and I will regularly take her to and from uni so that we have more time to study together. It doesn’t take much convincing for me to get her down by the Tea house for fruit and nut slices, tea and a rest in the breeze.

We never stop at the tea house, our budgets don’t stretch that far. We much prefer the company and relaxed atmosphere of Il Lido Italian Canteen across the road.

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.
