My Lupus Story

Nothing is Impossible with God
How will you feel if your doctor will tell you that you have SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus) and there’s no cure on it? In 2002, I was 19 years old, on my 2nd year college when I had hematoma on my legs and I easily get tired so I went to see a hematologist to find out what was it.

Letter from a Butterfly

Today I Saw Myself

Today I saw myself as I was many years ago,
fraid to think of what tomorrow’d bring, why was this so?
In eyes wet with tears of feeling, Lord, why should it be?
Why should I be so ill like this; oh, why should it be me?
