7 LUPUS FRIENDLY TIPS FOR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS

Below is a personal guide that I have shared to help families and friends of Lupies to communicate and interact after the initial diagnosis. I found them helpful for me when I had to adjust to my new life; living with lupus.

  1. Give us some space

  2. What and How to ask questions about Lupus

  3. Learn about Lupus together

  4. Be understanding and flexible

  5. Refrain from bombarding us with recommendations for therapy/superfood/magic pills

  6. Be considerate. If you are sick, keep a distance

  7. Find and create a time for safe communication
