Re: how to explain my Lupus to my kids
Hi, my best answer for your question is to tell them the truth of what your going through. Just try to put it in more simple words that they understand. Tell them it's like your body is allergic to itself and you feel really tired all the time. The sun makes these things worse so you stay out of it. That's pretty much how i told my kids, but mine are 9 and 7. Just try to base the information you give them on how mature they are and try not to scare them. Alot of people say not to tell them but kids know when something is wrong and they need something to explain what is going on around them and to their parent.....hope this helped in some way.
