Courage is finding out about my lupus and accepting it as part of my life. Courage is using medication as a means of survival and still being happy regardless of the circumstances. Courage is dedicating myself to my health and making hospitals my second home. Courage is having a painful lupus flare ups in the morning and going swimming in the afternoon. Courage is not viewing lupus as a form of limitation, but a way to expand my view on everything. Courage is being happy despite anything that could be wrong with me. Courage is accepting that being unique can be a good thing. Courage is accepting that I may not be able to do all that I've been able to do, but that won't stop me from being who I want to be. Courage is accepting that despite my condition, I am stronger than most.

I will never let my lupus determine my happiness or the outcome of my life. I will live as a lupus fighter, not a lupus victim. I have lupus, but it doesn't have me.
