Lupus through the Lens: Visit our photo gallery for expressions of the lupus experience

Strings and My Guitar, by Barbara
Music has always been emotionally comforting and a “feel good” to my soul. This photograph depicts many strings of a guitar which represent the challenge for me to play even one note. Trying to strum to try to create a note hurts and is painful. Both the strumming hand and the hand holding the neck of the guitar hurt me. The crippling effect of lupus makes it notably difficult to play my guitar.

As part of Lupus Research Awareness Month, many of our clients participated in a photography project called “Lupus through the Lens.”  Visit our online photo gallery for their unique expressions of the lupus experience.
