A close friend of mine has lupus. I remember him before he had it. He was really chubby and outgoing. He celebrated his 25th birthday this year and looking at him I just can't help but be emotional. His body changed drastically. He lost a lot of weight, and had been bedridden for almost a month now and has difficulty in breathing from time to time. You can actually hear the "whiz" sound in his voice. Ever since he was diagnosed with lupus I try to educate myself with the disease to try to help him and his family out. But sometimes you can never brace yourself with these things.
