How it all started with Lupus

I was first diagnosed in 2015 with systemic lupus erythematosus symptoms, which included fatigue, joint pains, swelling headaches, rashes, hair loss, seizures and blood-clotting problems. I was pregnant at the time and I almost lost my life and the life of my baby. I had memory loss and confusion, I couldn't remember family, friends or co-workers. I couldn't read, write, or even pronounce certain words. I lost 56 pounds because everything I ate came back up. The night before they took my baby at 7 months away from me. I was having seizures all night and they had to rush me to ICU.    I'm alive and well today because of prayers and a strong support system! I'm forever grateful to my family and friends, and the almighty God for a second chance at life. I'm alive for a reason and a purpose. I haven't had a relapse since 2016, I don't get joint pains, I don't feel tired, I don't get headaches, my joints don't swell and I don't get rashes. When I say the Lord's been good, it's an understatement! I feel like the luckiest woman alive. I have my two daughters at my side and I'm forever grateful.
