So, if you are one of those who found me because you were seeking butterfly images, welcome! I trust you will take a moment to learn a little more about lupus, perhaps by stopping for a few minutes to read a post or two. You will find at least one butterfly picture in every blog post.
If you want to find out more about lupus, please read the “ Lupus Medical Information ” page of this blog. It will take you to a page with basic information about lupus and links to more detailed authoritative information. I suggest at very least visiting the Lupus Foundation of America at www.lupus.org .
If you just want to see the pretty butterflies and don’t feel like reading about lupus, no problem! Please just click on the “Butterfly Collecting Adventures” button or browse through posts to see the butterflies on each, and enjoy.
My hope is that maybe you will do both — enjoy the butterflies and learn more about lupus!
If all you really want is a postage stamp summary of lupus, and no more, here are a few quick points:
Lupus awareness is very important, especially for those people who don’t yet know they have lupus. For example, many people know enough about diabetes to recognize possible symptoms in another person, and would urge someone with diabetes symptoms to seek medical advice. So, also, knowing enough about lupus to recognize its common signs and symptoms in a friend or family member could make a great difference, or possibly even save her life.
Lupus awareness is very important. Although there is no cure yet, there are new and exciting medications, treatments and ongoing research that can help prevent lupus from destroying the health of those who have it. Because one out of every 150 people has lupus, it is very likely that someone you know has lupus.
Thank you so much for stopping by, even if it was just to see the butterflies. If you learned a little about lupus, even better!
