Today is National Lupus Day!!! Here is a self-portrait I made this weekend to send to Germany for the Lupus Art Exhibit. About four weeks ago I had a flare, the first one in five years. My postcard will be shown in exhibits and then will find itself into a hand a another person with this disease. After this last flare, one that was not just on my skin but in my vascular system I have changed the way I look at Lupus. I have decided it can be beautiful!
