The one thing about life is that it’s going to keep on going. Life is going to continue to throw you curveball after curveball and unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to prevent that. Some days will be amazing and full of highs, some days will be bad and full of lows. Whether or not you plan for all that life has to offer, in the end, you’re going to have to work with it. This means any type of setbacks, failed plans, or even sickness. Regardless of what it is, making the best out of what you have is the key way to maneuver through life.

When inflammation is triggered and a lupus flare-up occurs on the skin, there will be rashes on your face and/or other parts of the body. Skin bruises and or sores will appear in the midst of lupus flare-ups as well.
