At the age of 17 I had already been close to death, twice. By a illness almost unknown in Sweden.———————————————————————— For 6 years, I lived in denial. I refused to accept this illness as a part of me. I was so tired of constantly being questioned about what it was and people still not understanding. It made me feel so alone and, ashamed. I hated this illness and talking about it. I didn’t want be defined by it. So I hid it from others, the best I could. But in reality I struggled everyday. Physically from the illness, but even more mentally. Inside I felt so empty and full of pain. It killed me from the inside out, literally. And after the trauma I went through in 2017, I had no will to live anymore. ———————————————————————— But today I’m here, stronger than ever. Stronger than this illness. I’m ready to share my story, and do the thing I’ve been dreaming of for years. So I created Lupus UF entirely by myself. I put my whole heart into it. I want to make a difference. I want to help myself. I want to help, inspire and engage others regardless if you have lupus or not. I want to contribute to the research so there can develop better treatments and eventually a cure. I want to raise lupus awareness.
This film above was aired on national TV (TV4) last saturday, reaching 600 000 viewers! But it doesn’t stop there. Please help me make this difference by sharing this post on your story and order our supercomfy sweatshirt to make a truly meaningful contribution. Thank you.
