In this video from the Lupus Foundation of America, Monique Gore-Massy shares how lupus has affected her.
Monique was diagnosed with lupus two months before her wedding after suffering from symptoms for more than a year. Since then she’s spent a lot of time in the hospital being treated for lupus-related issues including problems with her kidneys and heart.
In the video, Monique explains how the disease has impacted her life and how she manages the condition on a day-to-day basis. She explains that lupus doesn’t just affect your body, it can also affect your finances, your social life, and your emotional health—in short, your whole life.
