A woman has been diagnosed with a rare genetical condition that leaves her skin covered in blisters each time she is exposed to the sun
The rare condition is called Lupus and it effects the immune system
She has stated that the disease has caused her a series of serious health problems that still plague her in day to day life
“It is a mark of evil things that came in the Great Darkness that they cannot abide the Sun,” wrote J.R.R. Tolkien in his book ‘The Lord of the Rings’.
She was shocked when she noticed that her body would get covered in red blisters after getting exposed to the sun when she was 18-years-old. When she went to the doctors the first time they told her that she had eczema, however further analysis revealed that she was actually suffering from a rare genetic condition called Lupus.
She recalls: “Flare ups started to become more regular, my face was so red and covered in angry blisters that I didn’t feel confident enough to go outside.”
She adds: “A few months later I had to go to hospital due to kidney failure, then I was informed that I had lupus and things just went downhill from there. I struggled to eat, drink, walk, and even sleep. My bed would be covered in sweat every morning and my skin became so red and blistered.”
The woman was told that the disease is incurable and she would have to battle it as long as she lives.
She has joined a support group for people that are affected with Lupus and stated that she finds comfort in helping and talking with others who have the suffer the same malady.
Mrs Rivers said: “I like to give advice to people who also suffer from a bad case of the disease; it makes me feel good to help others in the similar position. We reassure and help each other fight this awful condition.”
The Nigerian Police has stated why the force cannot arrest operators of Ponzi scheme MMM.
Police said it does not have any directive from the government to arrest operators or participants of the MMM.
It also explained that it would not go after operators or participants in the scheme because no one had complained about being swindled by the programme.
“We are not going after the operators because there is no complaint from anyone that he was swindled by them, (1)” Force Public Relations Officer, Donald Awunah told Punch.
“No one has complained against them, so we have no reason to go after them. There is no directive from the government to arrest the operators or shut them down,(2)” he added.
A report on the social media is that all is not well. In less than a month after the ‘royal wedding’ of billionaire son, Ahmed Indimi to President Buhari’s daughter, Zahra, the Indimi sisters — Ameena, Yataka, her twin sister, Zahra, aka, Ya’Gumsu, and the estranged wife of Mohammed Babangida, Rahama are said to be up in arms against First Lady Aisha Buhari.
The sisters, who were “barred” by Aisha Buhari from attending Zahra’s wedding in Abuja on December 16, have started casting aspersions on their in-laws subtly on social media…
According to Kemi Ashefon, this pay-Aisha-back-in-her-coin gesture kick-started on December 31, 2016 when Premium Times, an online news portal published a story on the budget.
Written by one Hassan Adebayo, the story entitled, “Presidency’s ‘kitchen equipment’ gets N100m despite N325m spent before” revealed how the Nigeria’s Presidency planned buying new “kitchen and catering equipment” for N100.8 million in 2017, which was contained in a proposal sent to the National Assembly.
Then, one of her followers, which obviously must be a friend chipped in: “It’ll be on a blog by morning o Zahra Indimi begs in law for old kitchen equipment.”
There was no post on the Abuja wedding on the Indimi sisters’ IG accounts!
Obviously, Buhari’s wife seems to have understood the game plan surrounding her daughter’s marriage into the family a little too late as some people have argued and she has since moved in to stabilise the home of her daughter.
