Chic Sundays: ‘autoimmune’ tote bag

Etsy has brought me joy once more.

When I first saw this featured in NessaLand’s shop I knew I had to have it.

So, for all the House MD fans out there, I give you “the lupus bag”.

Systemic lupus erythematosus or lupus for short is an autoimmune disease [that also appeared a lot in House, didn’t it] which means that the immune system is acting berserk and attacks the ‘self’ [cells of body]. Because pretty much every organ can be affected, the symptoms can mimic those of a bunch of other diseases. That’s why lupus seems like a plausible option when you don’t know what’s wrong with a person.

There is no cure for lupus, but the symptoms are treatable and the chances of living up to 20 years after diagnosis are higher than 70%.
