Wait, so you're telling me that @realDonaldTrump can get hydroxychloroquine (plaquenil) because he "feels" it will help him while, meanwhile, SLE patients like me were told to RATION our prescriptions because of the shortage that he induced?? #lupus
To those autoimmune patients (SLE, RA, Lyme, Sjögren’s, and the rest of us) who are in the same struggle- thank you for your support and for your stories. I still have limited hydroxychloroquine (my refills were cut from a 3-month supply to a 1-month supply) 1/14
I did not lie about having to ration my hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) dosage. Typically, I take 150mg. I was told by my rheumatologist to reduce to 100mg per day and, if I was not in a flare, to do 100mg every other day. 2/14

I think you've once heard of a disease by the name 'Lupus' This being #LupusAwarenessMonth, Here are some facts just to help you understand about #Lupus. Go through it and please Retweet,

#Lupus is a systemic autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body. The body's immune system mistakes the healthy cells and tissues as foreign and starts to attack them. It is a chronic disease, meaning once you develop it, you'll have lupus for the rest of your life.
There are around 4 types of Lupus namely, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus(SLE)which affects all systems, Discoid L.E whose symptoms only affect the skin, Drug induced due to a reaction to some drugs and finally Neonatal Lupus(Born from a mother with it)
