It's still okay to observe!

Happy World lupus Day! 

Okay I know it was yesterday, but I’m living under the umbrella of lupus so I can be forgiven for running slowly. It’s not that I forgot it’s just that I couldn’t get my act together and by the time I did, well it was today.  

So seeing as we are living with lupus everyday I thought that it was acceptable to acknowledge mr lupus today. I know that it is not quite the same as if we observed it on the actual day and the rest of the world may not be watching, in the same way as they were yesterday, but I am sure we can still make a lupus ripple. 

Situation makeover

In fact lets give this situation a makeover, what I am actually suggesting is that we simply extend World lupus Day to today to encourage everyone who didn’t get a chance to observe it yesterday does not feel that they have missed the opportunity. Well isn’t life all about perspective?

It feels as though we should be observing a 1-minute silence or something like that in anticipation of his death. Yes that’s exactly what I want to do, so let’s do it! 

Lupus pause 

For the next minute or so, I want you to stop what you are doing and dream of a time when lupus will be a thing of the past, a time when men and women, young and old, black and white will not be subjected to the antics of mr lupus. A time when people like myself, our families and friends, will feel free again to be and do all the things they want to whenever they want to. (This reminds me of Martin Luther King and the I have a Dream speech. Watch this space I may just write my own) 

Okay, I realise that this may take a little longer than 1 minute so take whatever time you need and then get a glass of whatever your favourite tipple is (mine is sparkling mineral water with a slice of lemon) and join me in raising your glass in honour of the death of mr lupus.
