Lupus Blog Spotlight: The Life of a 20-Something With Lupus

Morning everyone.

It's a rather dreary day here in Washington, DC. Gray, overcast & drizzling. Even so, I am ready to relax this weekend, as this has been a very busy week. Last night, I finished watching Judgment at Nuremberg. Wow, talk about a powerful movie. And what an amazing cast: Burt Lancaster, Spencer Tracy, Judy Garland, Montgomery Clift and Marlene Dietrich. If you haven't seen it, and you're willing to spare 3 hours, I'd recommend it.

And now to lupus news.

I realized it's been a while and so I'd like to shine a spotlight on another lupus blogger I recently came across.

Her name is Miz Flow and she hails from Toronto. She is 25 years old and this is how she describes herself. "I'm just a normal 25 year old girl ... except for the fact that I have lupus. I'll admit ... it's not easy ... but lupus certainly doesn't define who I am. I've been away from school for a bit for health reasons, but I'm studying HR @ York University. I also work part time for a major bank. I hope that in the future when I finish school, I'll be able to work in the Human Resources department of the company I currently work for."

Miz Flow writes a blog called The Life of a 20-Something With Lupus. Check out her blog and say hi. As I've said before, it’s always interesting to gain some perspective on what it’s like to live with lupus in another country.

And ... wherever you are, have a great weekend.

Until next time, Wick

Thanks for the shout out!

I hope that anyone who reads my blog, whether they have Lupus or not, was able to take something away from it and learn something new...or at least think of something that they already knew in a different way!
