This is what Lupus looks like. We do not look sick everyday. I am 24 years old. A mother, a student, a business owner, sister, friend, cousin, and aunt and I HAVE LUPUS. There is no look. I have organ involvement and good days and bad days. I may not look sick to you but if you could turn me inside out you would truly understand. It attacks my heart, kidneys, pancreas, and most recently, my lungs. Around 80% of Lupus patients downplay their symptoms so they do not stress or alarm family and friends. There is NO one look for Lupus. Where I have Kidney involvement, another patient may be dealing with heart issues. There is no textbook case because all cases present differently. I was diagnosed when I was 20 and it's been a roller coaster ride ever since. There are days when I HATE this condition and then there are others where it has taught me so much. I've learned to appreciate life. I learned that I am not immortal. Life eventually ends...but what matters is what you do in between your beginning and you . ...

I will be voting for Mark Begich, and I hope everyone I know has the good sense to talk with their families about how dangerous Murkowski and Sullivan are to our women, our people, to our cultures, and to Alaska. I also hope you encourage everyone you know to register to vote, and to vote for Begich, we need at least one ally who will work for Alaska, and Alaskans.

Daily Kos Elections Morning Digest Leading Off: AK-Sen: The New York Times takes an interesting look at Democratic outreach among Native Americans in Alaska, who make up about a fifth of the state's population but are often difficult to reach as they're spread across the state's vast wilderness; tend to have low voter turnout; often deal with a lack of election materials printed in native languages; and don't typically divide their loyalties along traditional party lines. But native voters were a key bloc in electing Sen. Mark Begich in 2008, and Democrats are deploying an army of 130 field workers around the state to reach out to them this cycle. A tireless campaign, Begich himself has traveled many miles to meet with native communities, and Democrats are also hopeful that their gubernatorial nominee, Byron Mallot, will drive up the native vote as he's an Alaska Native himself. However, the GOP frontrunner, Dan Sullivan, is married to a prominent native woman, and Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who will almost cer ...
