@LAlupusLady recently sent this intriguing tweet out on Twitter:
Does anyone "celebrate" the day they were diagnosed w/ #Lupus?
33 years ago...today at a 3PM Drs. appointment heard "you have Lupus."
Hm. I had to think about that. Do I "celebrate" the date of my Sjogren's diagnosis? My first reaction was, Heck NO. I don't "celebrate" anything about autoimmune disease. I don't even know the actual date of my diagnosis. I suppose I could look back in my records...
After a little reflection on how stressed I was for those months before my diagnosis, I would grudgingly admit that while my diagnosis was not something to celebrate, it certainly was a relief to have a specific name for my problems.
I never thought about commemorating the day of my diagnosis. Did you?

I wonder if it comes in a gluten and dairy free, low-sugar version?
