    Question What are the chances????

    I found out something strange today. What are the chances that in an office of 15 people; three of them would have one form or another of AI. We are all women in the 40-65 age bracket too.

    this is weird is it not

    Not surprised. There have been a lot of articles and news reports the last few years about autoimmune disorders are on the rise.

    Im guessing it may relate to the type of industry? something people with an AI would be more leaning towards? Still very high percentage!!

    Environmental factors have long been suspected as a contributing factor of AI diseases but have not been able to be solidly and scientifically proven. I think there's something to it. The girl who lived directly across the street from me in jr/sr hs and is my age has a confirmed lupus dx. What are the chances we both got sick about the same time with similar symptoms and mine have been suspected as lupus and hers is confirmed. Definitely weird.
    As long as this body works, I am going to enjoy life to the fullest for each second of every moment that I can.
