I absolutely love the the Lupus Chick published a list of ideas on how to spread Lupus Awareness at school! I have to say that I have never seen a school have a club for students battling Lupus! It's a wonderful idea, and I would love to be involved in one!

It's not always easy comforting our loved ones when they are suffering from a chronic illness! If you are like me, you don't always know what to say, and then eventually end up second guessing everything you already said! It's completly normal! We care for our loved ones and don't want to upset them.
The Lupus Chick published a list of 7 Tips to help us! I love all of the tips they gave us, but I have to say number 3 is my favorite. I think sometimes we are quick to try and make the person we are talking to realize that other people have it worse but sometimes that may come off the wrong way, and end up offending them. Check out the full list of tips here!
