Like others with Lupus, I am excited about the recent medical advances related to the treatment of this very difficult disease. In addition to using medical treatments, I also believe in the importance of using non-medical treatments, such as exercise, nutrition, and stress reduction to help manage Lupus symptoms. I believe that these non-medical treatments actually complement, and support, medical treatments for Lupus.
I am doing research for my Master's thesis on self-confidence related to managing Lupus symptoms; stress related to having Lupus; and non-medical treatments that benefit individuals living with Lupus. I am looking for participants to take a 15-minute online survey. Participants must have either a diagnosis of Lupus or a tentative diagnosis of Lupus. Also, in order to satisfy my school's protocol, participants must be between 18 - 64 years of age.
This survey is voluntary, and you are under no obligation to participate in this research. If you decide to participate, I want you to know that the survey does not collect any personally identifiable information. All information you provide will be anonymous and will remain completely confidential.
