Hi! This is Annie. I’m the Lupus Guru, and my goal is to use my background in nursing to talk about rheumatic diseases in a way that decodes confusing ‘doctor-speak!.’ I use my background as a freelance writer to write engagingly about my experiences with lupus. The more we learn, the more we become empowered, too and will hopefully learn to listen to our inner voice and begin to ’trust our gut’ about our bodies and their response to our disease.
I also think that the more we understand, the more you’ll know and be able to teach friends and loved ones your symptoms and why you experience them. If you have thoughts or concerns, complete the Contact the Guru form to your right.
That said, NOTHING included in this blog, including comments, is ever meant to substitute for advice from your personal physician. Your doctor knows you, your medical history and you laboratory values, so is much more prepared, though doesn’t always have time to teach. There are exciting developments happening on the ‘lupus’ front. Stay tuned!
Last, but not least; There are a lot of books about lupus and two of my personal favorites which ought to be in consideration for your lupus library:
“The LupusBook” by The Lupus Encyclopedia by Dr. Donald Thomas
Dr. Daniel Wallace
