As someone who has been fairly recently diagnosed with Lupus, I was wondering if anyone knew of any videos that might be available that would be helpful in explaining to family about Lupus?
I know about a lot of literature, booklets, etc about Lupus. Unfortunately, I do not know of any videos. Perhaps you can contact the Lupus Foundation of America to see if they can give you some suggestions about where you can find a video. Here is their website: http://www.lupus.org
Peace and Blessings
I found this wonderful, ten minute clip on the internet and find that it really explains things well to most folks who don't know much about the disease: http://www.dxlupus.org/AnimationLibrary.aspx?Mode=1
I also bought 'Stories of Lupus' and its sequel from Fanlight Productions (over $40 each!). Both films were decent (if a little depressing). They could scare family members off, though, so you might want to start with the clip.
Hope this helps!
