As someone with Lupus (or any invisible chronic illness for that matter) it can be very difficult to explain your condition to others.
One of the best is through creativity. Short films and animation can be really powerful tools to help friends and family have a better grasp on what you’re going through. It’s why I started this platform and do Video of the Week.
Lupus UK created a short animation explaining what Lupus is, the symptoms and social effects it has on its sufferers. The animation is bright, colourful and gets the point across clearly and effectively. I highly suggest anyone suffering from Lupus to send this to friends and loved ones.
Have you seen the last Video of the Week?
And have you also seen Emma’s Story? It’s a short animation I directed that explains chronic chest and back pain.
