Through internet I have learned that I am not the only Filipino who is suffering from LUPUS. Through my blog I was able to reach out to my fellow lupus patient and some of them I remained in touch. I wrote in this blog that one of them passed away last March 2012, now it pains me deeply that another one has succumbed to Lupus. Last October 2012, I talked to Ems who at that moment was undergoing dialysis. I was encouraging her because it’s her birth month and she is still in the hospital. I was not able to talk to her again and just last week I checked on her FB and I was shocked to see goodbye messages on her wall. I was so sad. And scared. I am praying that I won’t suffer the same fate. That’s why I am going to really stick to healthy eating and exercising.
