Life is tough enough on its own, but when you have a chronic disease, tough is for wimps.

Welcome to the Life Despite Lupus website

This site is all about living life to the fullest – your fullest. What’s on your medical records is not who you are and doesn’t have to hang over your life like a cloud of doom. Here you’ll find health, wellness and life tips, tricks, hacks and other sneaky ways to live smarter, not harder. All from a girl who’s been there, done that and burned the t-shirt.
