She somehow found her way to Hippie Hill through the dips and valleys of life. I asked, “What brought you to Tennessee?” She said that she was battling Lupus and her hands and feet often hurt while living up north. “My doctor drew a line on a map and said if you live anywhere here, you will have better results and feel better while battling Lupus,” she told me… “So we came here.”

With Lupus joint pain is common. Warmer climates help to alleviate the pain. Fatigue, headaches, mouth ulcers, etc. are all things that those with Lupus are up against.
