I’m so humbled by all the support from the Lupus Foundations and organizations. I am also very appreciative of the Women in Pain Conference for allowing me to speak my truth. Things have honestly been amazing and I have been truly blessed. I haven’t had the time to blog and reach out to people like I should. I’m working towards getting back to all the emails.
I hope you guys are remaining strong and hopeful, as I know life is hard. You should never allow anyone to tell you that you can’t do something. I remember growing up, I was picked on a lot because I looked different and due to my culture. Self-acceptance is steel. I can’t tell you how many times people have said stupid things about the color of my eyes, my hair, my body, or who I am as a person. People see something nice and they assume it’s fake or they see happiness and assume you’re being fake. However, you know yourself the best, and people say that because they want to chop you down.
