Tonight, I will be talking  with Ms. KS Oliver, Author of Still Standing. 

I am a mother of two boys, William Sha’Kwan & Trystyn K’Shaun. I was born in New York and raised in Georgia. I am the oldest of eleven children. I have an Associate’s Degree in General Studies, and a certificate in Medical Billing & Coding. Although I have these skills, writing has always been my guilty pleasure.

On May 20, 2010, following the birth of my youngest child, I was diagnosed with SLE also known as Lupus. Subsequently, I was diagnosed with Discoid Lupus (Skin Lupus), Fibromyalgia, Fibrosis, Hypotension, Hypothyroids, Cricoarytenoiditis (Lupus in my voice box) & Severe Depression.

Over the past three years, my medical records are as thick as a how-to manual. I have stayed home in bed for weeks at a time in tears. I had a sore throat for over a year with no explanation. My hair has fallen out in clumps. My skin has broken out to the point where I was almost unrecognizable. God grace has spared me from death more than one person deserves, but even still I am here. 
I want to raise awareness to this debilitating disease. I want people to understand it is not easy feeling like something controls your life more than you do.
