October is Lupus Awareness Month

October is lupus Awarenesss Month. You can visit http://lupus.org/ for more info. I did this layout with a Lupus Awarenss Kit called Lilac & Butterlies available at K-Joi Studios in November. I did this for the Lupus Awareness Challenge at Scrapbookflair.

I was diagnosed with Lupus in August 1992. My body was destroying Platelet and red blood cells. I spent a whole month in the hospital having plasma pheresis and high doses of steroids. It is a miracle that I lived. When I arrived at Barnes Hospital I was jaundice and in and out of a coma.Today I am doing well I have good days and bad. But I have learned to take one day at a time. You cannot fight with the wolf and win. So I dance with the wolf instead.Lupus Awareness Page Kit by Buzybee (that's Me) My portion of the kit at k-Joi Studios (charity Kit)Template #3 by Angela NiehausFonts: Packard AntiqueDone in PSE 5.0
