Muni Long Opens Up About Lupus Struggles and Reveals Autism Diagnosis

On Sunday, Muni Long took to Twitter to reveal to fans that she was autistic while also updating them on her Lupus diagnosis.

“So apparently, I’m autistic, and my free self is the version of me that I began repressing at the age of 22 because it made people highly uncomfortable,” she tweeted to her followers. “It started first with me doing insane amounts of drugs, and then when that didn’t work, I just held it in. Which led to lupus.”

She said, “And now the lupus has gotten to a point where it’s effectively impossible to contain. And in order to free myself from the roller coaster that is autoimmune disease, I have to let my emotions, thoughts, and feelings out. But, Autism!”

Muni then described the situation as “wack” but said that understanding it “explains so much.”

“A lot of days, I just wanna put my head in the pillow and scream… minus the pillow, though,” she wrote.

Long discussed her lupus diagnosis during a recent appearance on REVOLT’sBlack Girl Stuff.”

“Lupus is an stress-related disease,” she explained to the hosts. “It’s a silent, invisible struggle ’cause you can’t see it. You wake up in the morning and you look just fine, but you really feel like you got ran over by a train… There’s a lot of different things that I’ve experienced with this diagnosis, everything from hair loss to skin rashes. Being in this business is vainglorious, so that affects my output so much. When I feel good, I look good, I produce well. When I feel like crap, and I gotta go out… Even something as small as someone touching my arm, it hurts. But I gotta smile, and I gotta talk to people when I don’t feel like talking.”
