Some of you know that I struggle with some random health issues.
I feel great right now (which is wonderful), but other times, not so much. My issues fit somewhere on the Lupus spectrum of issues, so I was recently interviewed over on the Lupus Chick blog.

They asked me for one bit of advice for those who suffer with chronic illnesses like Lupus. I said that I would like people to know that they are not alone in their struggle. If they have not found the right help or support yet, keep looking because it is out there.
I would also like them to know that they can take some control of their disease–as small as it might be–just by taking extra good care of their bodies.
- Get extra sleep
- Eat extra fruits and veggies
- Exercise as much as is healthy (or you’re able)
For me, even having that much control was empowering in a disease that seems random and unpredictable.
Most of all, keep your chin up and take care of yourself!!!!!
