My names Eileen, I'm 48, have SLE, Neuro Lupus, (actually lots of autoimmune now that I've looked at site list, Eek) during last flare diagnosed w type 1 diabetes, ulcerative colitis, RA, fibromyalgia, seizure disorder, pernicious anemia.
I was better off not knowing maybe.
I am really doing well, except the last flare Drs put me on low dose prednisone and migraine won't leave.
For the last few years I was pretty miserable, I'm much better as slowly things are coming together. I think it helps to find that what your feeling is real, why its happening etc.
First started the autoimmune dx's when I was 13, didn't know it was AI, love that Drs forget to inform you.
I've been diagnosed and undiagnosed several times, now I'm diagnosed, have a superb team of Drs finally and doing much better.
I have a great service dog, who does diabetes work, helps w my arthritis and Lupus, her name Is Ania.
I am working toward helping others move forward w their service animals.
Really excited to find the forum and learn more, knowledge is power.
Thanks for having me.
