Lupus Blog Spotlight: Getting Closer to Myself

Good morning everyone:

Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was ok. Have another quick movie review with you. I saw No Country for Old Men. Made by the Coen brothers (who I really like), No Country for Old Men was a decent movie. I guess I had heard so much about it that my expectations were a bit high, and so while watching it, I was a little underwhelmed. For me, the Tommy Lee Jones parts of the movie were the weakest parts.

Lupus Blog Spotlight

I would like to share another lupus blog with you. It is called Getting Closer to Myself. The blogger's name is Leslie and she lives in Michigan. Here's a little bit about her ... in her own words.

"This blog is about a lot of things in my life, but it's main purpose is to get my story out there and create awareness about autoimmune diseases. In April 2008, at the age of 22, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. The road to get to that point was by no means an easy one. And if I can help make that road easier for others, that is my goal."

If you have a few moments, swing by Getting Closer to Myself and say hi to Leslie.

That's the lupus scoop from my end.

Until next time, Wick
