May was Lupus Awareness Month. This is to increase public knowledge of lupus and devastating this condition can be. It affects predominantly young females, a period where life is just beginning, whether it is their careers or their family. It is a vulnerable period for many, leading to depression and withdrawal from society. Some leave not only physical disfigurement but mental and emotional scars as well.
Vbuzz was an English variety show on Astro Vinmeen HD. Being on TV always adds additional stress when you have to look physically your best and be aware of all your irritating mannerisms when speaking. The hosts and producers were very reassuring. Many thanks to Loh Yu Mi for taking the pictures.
This was followed a few days later on BFM 89.9, the business channel. The interview was done by Meera Sivasothy. The message was again lupus and what the Malaysia SLE Association does for lupus patients.
