Good morning Everyone!
HAPPY LUPUS AWARENESS MONTH!
Just a short note today.
I received some correspondence from some readers who are concerned about the use of the word "lupie".
I had not thought about the impact of that term on people who may feel that I am minimizing their suffering.
I would never do such intentionally and I sincerely apologize to anyone who felt hurt by that word.
The term "lupie" is a word used by many in my lupus support network as a sign of friendship and camaraderie. So I was using the term as a sign of friendliness and acceptance.
That being said, I will make every effort to be sensitive to the reading audience here.
I will be re-working all journal entries so that the writing more accurately reflects the seriousness of the topic.
my sense of humor won't vanish!
I can only be myself.
