How can a young professional, and for that matter anyone, give full expression to all the untapped potential, contribute to the organization, earn their keep and be serviceable to society when they have to deal with an unpredictable, complicated and chronic autoimmune disorder like lupus?
It is an extremely difficult situation for one to be in. Mostly because it not well known and also because it may not be effectively managed without counseling, medical and financial assistance. Thank God! OYEMAM is here to mobilize support for those in need of it.
It may seem hopeless when an autoimmune condition like lupus strikes out of the blue. Indeed it is hopeless when there is no knowledge and support. Otherwise we can help sufferers of autoimmune disorders manage their conditions well enough to live normal lives like the rest of us.
If you have not come into close contact with someone suffering from lupus, you may not be able to envisage what it entails. Increasingly we hear of people dying of lupus. The time to act is now.
