About Me

Welcome to Conquer In Spite Of. My name is Megan and I have Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.

I had my first Lupus symptom in 2011. At first, it was a nightmare and a curse, but now I've realized that I'm the lucky one. I know the value of health and I have the opportunity to help other people suffering from Lupus or other chronic illnesses.

Feel free to follow me on Twitter. My twitter handle is: @ConquerLupus

  1. lupie! love it...

    i wish there was some cute name for those of us with the MS beast....

  2. Make up one! I'm sure if you thought about it long enough you could come up with something cute. These names all had to start somewhere.

  3. Happy Lupus Day!!! I'll be wearing a purple shirt in your honor :) It sucks that someone as young and full of life as you has to go through all this... I know you don't know me, but if you ever need an ear or someone to vent to or whatever, just let me know ^_^ I'd even say mild girl's night if you lived near Orange County lol :)

  4. Thank you :) You can have my ear as well. :)
