Something that has been on my mind lately is whether sharing myself openly to the world about having Lupus is the “right” decision.
I’ve always been a private person. An introvert at heart. It’s much easier to write here on the blog than to really speak up in the open.
I don’t like drawing attention to myself…
I’ve had some negative remarks from my people about the fact that I try to be more openly talk about it when there is a chance…
It’s not that I want the whole goddamn world to know my pain and sufferring… It’s more that… During those times when I really am struggling with the pain and living with this illness… I wish with all the fibres of my soul that a cure is there. That there’s a magic pill I can take and everything will return to how it was… A healthy body.
I strongly feel that one of the easiest， most important contribution towards cure would be advocacy and raising awareness… And to do that， I need to speak up.
I can’t hide behind this illness and be the silent “warrior” and passively wishing for a cure to be there… Right?
