Alright, so…

Doing my final project for my anatomy class. A case study, for a particular illness. Inspired by Dr. House, I chose lupus. Doing my research, I come across this:


Note that SLE refers to systemic lupus erythematosus, known simply as "lupus".

Now, I dunno about you, but I barely understood a couple of the words in that. And I’m taking this course. I suppose that’s what happens when you consult medical texts for information, but… damn. That’s some heavy language. Tell me what you think.

Sorry Saxon, just had to :/



  1. If you’d like to know what the majority of it means… let me know… as a lupus patient I can tell you what the majority of it is.

    • Thanks, but I’d rather research it myself, as is the purpose of this assignment. Might it be possible to consult you if I did end up having any questions, though? I’m trying to create a believable story of someone with this condition.

      • Makes sense. And yes, definitely! 🙂
