by Joscelyn Derene Knight In the latter part of 1984, I was diagnosed with Lupus S.L.E. (Systematic Lupus Erythematous). When I was diagnosed, all I was given were some pamphlets written by doctors. No one seemed to know what I was going to experience. My doctors told me we would handle any problems when they came up. After my diagnosis, my life as I had known it came to a drastic halt, and a long battle began. Lupus devastated my life mentally, physically, and financially. This is a very cruel disease. It comes in many different flavors. It has no mercy and doesnt care who you are, and there is no cure. I have won some tough battles, and I have lost a lot of battles with this disease. I have seen and been a part of many of Gods miracles. I have lost a lot of good friends along the way and made a lot of new friends. I am currently in remission. I pray that I stay in remission. I wrote this book from my personal experiences. I have lived through this cruel and merciless disease. There were so many days I did not think I would, but with Gods mercy and blessings, I did. If you take anything from this book after reading it, I would like you to remember that when you are at your weakest moments, when you feel you just cant go on, turn to God. With his help, we can survive anything, even lupus. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Joscelyn Derene Knight is an upcoming inspiring author of nonfiction.
