What is Selena Gomez exactly going through with lupus?
I know, there are some diseases we only know about since a celebrity is going through them but, we probably did not know anything about it before these celebrities spoke about them right?
Well, this was at least the case for me when I found out Selena Gomez has lupus. First of all I thought: This is a sort of funny name for a disease right?
But, let me tell you something my friend, there is nothing funny nor fun about lupus and this is exactly what I want to focus on in this article so that next time we hear what Selena Gomez is going through we can kind of get how hard this actually is on her!
The first thing we need to know is what this actually is
This is actually an autoimmune disease whose most common symptoms are seen in the patient’s skin. This disease affects the joints as well and it happens to be a chronic one.
Now, we can guess that some people can actually live with skin rashes from time to time right? Well, the problem with this autoimmune disease is that some of the patient’s internal organs can be affected as well and I am specifically referring to the nervous system and the kidneys.
So, as you can see, it can get pretty serious. In Selena’s case, not only has he had to deal with these disease in a very public way but also, this has brought some additional issues for her such as stress, depression and anxiety.
Was this what brought her to take breaks from the public eye?
I think the answer to this question is kind of obvious right? Imagine having to go through such a hard disease and try to keep your family as worry free as they could be.
You already pictured it right? Now picture having to go through this disease in front of millions of people and still have to keep a happy face for the cameras.
I think it is pretty obvious why Selena Gomez had to take a break from the public eye. It was more than necessary.
