  1. God has blessed you with this super ability that through it all you are able to put this incurable disease into words that are so powerful! I can relate! Keep on fighting! Gods gotcha!💅🏾👍🏾🙏🏾

  2. Wow that was beautiful and amazing! I thought of my son who has Noonan’s and his super power is that his heart has an amazing drum beat when pumping blood through his short but mighty limbs. He is small but fierce and full of life even when he looks tired.

  3. May God continue to strengthen you through your journey with Lupus. I was diagnosed in 1985. The struggle, the ebbs and flows, the pain and exhaustion, it’s all real… we smile and show up in spite of it all. Yes, you are (we are) a Superhero!

  4. Thank you for those words. I have the superpower or gift of listening and assisting in mental health. This is my calling.
