The Lupus Foundation here in DC has October as the Lupus Awareness month, to be honest, breast cancer has it beat...I have seen one commercial re: Lupus and no purple, no solicitors calling:) I have been seeing alot of pink though....not that Im anti-pink but a different month for purple wouldnt hurt...pink is hard to compete w for the attention!

 Plaquinil, Trazodone, Lidoderm, Percocet for now...
