Hi, I'm Dr. Connie. When first diagnosed with Lupus, I lived in fear as a Lupus Victim.
I listened to my Doctors and did everything they said to do.
Over time, I realized the Doctors only focus on disease management, and if I wanted to regain my health, I was on my own.
So I got busy applying all that I learned to get healthier, until I had my first Lupus flare which threatened my kidneys.
I had no choice but to resort to the toxic meds to get my body back in balance.
Despite the treatment, I knew I had to work harder to regain my health.
It worked, and my Doctors were so surprised at how fast I recovered.
Over 20 years of being a Lupus patient as well as a clinician taught me that there's one key ingredient to any patient's success.
It's the willingness to change your mind about Lupus and your commitment to heal.
Today, my mission in life is to help as many of you as possible create a thriving and healthy life despite Lupus.
