Our next 'Topic of the Month' discussion for 2017 is going to be 'Relationships & Lupus'.
A chronic illness can have a profound effect on a relationship and lupus is no exception to this. Perhaps one of the greatest issues around lupus is that often there are no visible symptoms, making it more difficult for partners to understand.
We’d really love to hear if you have any tips and experiences for forming and/or maintaining a romantic relationship when you have lupus. How did you first approach telling your partner that you have lupus? Were you diagnosed whilst in a relationship, so that you had to learn to understand the disease together? How do you keep the magic alive when you are unwell?
We would like to hear all of your tips and experiences (good and bad) and we’ll compile them towards the end of the month for an article. Please share in the comments section below, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The article itself will be posted on the LUPUS UK Blog at lupusuk.org.uk/category/blog/
