Welcome!

My name is Olga Lucia Torres, and I became a person with disabilities after surviving a brain injury. I also live with a pituitary adenoma, lupus, and 5 other auto-immune diseases. What can I say, I’m a bit of an over-achiever!

How did I overcome so much? Living with gratitude and having a positive outlook, even during tough times. I now talk and write about living well with illness.

I came up with a way to manage my doctor appointments by creating a medical resume. Download yours today!

Flying with Broken Wings

This Sunday, October 17th, 2PM EST, Olga Lucia Torres will be reading from her debut memoir.

This event will be held at the Queens Theatre as part of the City Artists Corps Showcase.

I’m Walking to End Lupus. Join Me?

I participate in the walk every year because I’ve been sick my entire life: starting with asthma, then a pediatric pituitary adenoma in my teens, later developing lupus, Raynaud’s disease, Sjogren’s disease, arthritis, scleroderma and Jaccoud’s arthropathy, finally suffering a devastating brain injury that left me disabled.

I now identify as an advocate, survivor, and mother of a miracle daughter. I write op-eds about what it’s like to live with lupus and the other health conditions I have. I hope to inspire many people to learn about lupus, donate, and walk with us.

18 minutes is the average time to wait past your appointment time until you can hear “the doctor will see you now.”

My name is Olga Lucia Torres, and I’m living with 5 auto-immune diseases. I use my experiences to help people see the value of adopting a “PROFESSIONAL PATIENT” mindset. It can empower you to be your own self-advocate while navigating your health and wellness journey.
