Caring for the Caregiver
February is Heart Month and we know that the heart and cardiovascular system, like other organ systems of the body, can be affected by lupus. Lupus can also affect affairs of the heart and relationships. What happens when someone you love Is diagnosed with lupus? It can be hard to understand the needs of our loved one especially when the signs and symptoms of lupus aren’t always obvious.
