Stop publishing " Most people with lupus are able to continue to work.

This is damaging to those of us that live with lupus and cannot work or do normal tasks and apply for disability. This also allows those that have certain expectations of us to continue to make assumptions based on bogus claims. Where are the statistics that prove that most of us can work full-time jobs? We have enough problems with employers, peers, family and friends who minimize our suffering and think that we just like to complain, exaggerate, or that we are hypochondriacs. This statement for the "fact of the day" perpetuates the assumption that those of us with lupus use our illness as an excuse and that "most" are more than able to do all the tasks that healthy people can. Also, those of us with lupus usually have more than one illness that we must try to control. Please help stop the prejudice that we as lupus survivors endure.
