I love gore/scary movies, but Martyrs is STILL the only movie that straight fucked me up.
Throwback to last summer before I started treatment for Lupus Nephritis.
I had my first kidney biopsy weeks before the first picture was taken. At that time, I often dealt with people thinking that I had an eating disorder. I always had people tell me to “eat more” or “work out”, but no matter how much I ate I wouldn’t gain a thing. And as for working out: I was too weak.
Middle picture was in the during treatment. The steroids I was given, along with many other pills, made me gain so much weight. My face blew up and almost everything else on my body. With the extra weight came a ton of insecurities, and because of that I distanced myself from a lot of close friends because I hated how I looked and I didn’t think anyone would understand.
Last picture was taken this past July. I am now back my to normal weight, with a little more muscle mass and a little more confidence.
I am very happy to say that as of this past Monday, I am officially on remission of my Lupus Nephritis. My lupus will never go away, but at least my kidneys are doin’ okay!
