Everyone goes though times where we feel like we are misunderstood. One thing that really bothers me is when people that don't know me at all, or anything or very little about what I've been though assumes things about me, or make up silly rumors. Everyone always has more going on than what anyone knows, so dont assume things, ask me whats going on. this is a monoluge i wrote when i felt i was being misunderstood and judged.
Lupus is an auto immune disease in which the body attacks itself. It can effect different organs, including your heart and lungs. I was diagnosed with lupus at the age of 14, on march 12, 2009.
A slacker? Your calling me a slacker because I haven't been in school for three days. I understand that your a spoiled brat that hasn't haven't had any significant life changing events and you think you know everything, but you don't know me, and you don't know what I've been though. You haven't spent three weeks in the hospital, and nine days in icu fighting for your life. You haven't had a blood clot go through your heart and afterwards be told that your a miracle. You haven't had bleeding lungs. You haven't had six months of chemo treatment. You don't take 15 different medicines a day. You don't go see a bunch of different doctors every month. You don't feel three times worse, and it doesn't last twice as long when you get sick, because you have a suppressed immune system. So before you call me a slacker, or make up rumors that I have some embarrassing contagious virus, know what your talking about, because you don't know me and you don't know what ivd been though.
