The Life of a 20-Something With Lupus - One Month Later

It's been just over a month since I started this blog, and the response that I've been getting from it is simply overwhelming. It makes me really happy to know that people from all around the globe read my blog and are able to take something away from it.

One person told me that they've learned more from reading my blog than they've learned in a year of being diagnosed. Others have told me that I'm an inspiration, and others have even been inspired to start their own blogs. It's so great to know that it's only been a month since I started writing this blog and it has already touched so many people.

When I started this blog, I started it solely for myself. I really didn't even think anyone else would read it. Once I came to realize that other people were actually reading it, I became more and more motivated to write about my experiences, my thoughts, my advice, etc.

Something I look forward to doing is speaking at a Lupus Ontario support group. I was floored when I was asked. But I have over a month to think of what I'm going to say, and I'll definitely write about it when the day comes.

So I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to read my blog. I've met a lot of great people online and learned a lot. One of the things that I really value is the support, advice, and comfort that I get from the people that read my blog. Keep the comments coming! I'll always do my best to personally respond to each and every one of them!

Let's try this again:

I love your blog. I have lupus, too, and I started having symptoms when I was your age. I have a blog about lupus, too - www.flaredup.blogspot.com, and I would like to link from my blog to yours, if that's okay. Some other friends and I are putting together a fundraiser to send women to the LFA's Lupus Advocacy Day in D.C. in March. Are you going? I think you'd really like it. You can email me directly at liz@silvercharmevents.com
