“The Girlfriend’s Guide to Lupus” is a fantastic resource not only for those diagnosed with lupus and looking for answers but also for those who care for them. It feesl like you are talking to a trusted friend and no topic is off limits. Sprinkled throughout the text are “tools” for your “toolbox” to navigate medical challenges, advocacy, personal interactions and all aspects of living with this disease.”

“I picked up this book to better understand a friend’s journey with the disease. Boy, was I captivated by page 2. For a first-time author, Chay absolutely nails it. Her writing is as down-to-earth as it gets—honest, raw, and refreshingly candid. This isn’t just a book for those living with Lupus; it’s a masterclass in approaching chronic illness with humor, grace, and helpful advice.
Amanda Chay has set the gold standard for how to tackle the topic of autoimmune diseases in a way that’s both engaging and informative.”
