Welcome to our WHL family. I can understand your feeling a bit shell shocked. It is a lot to take in and a bit scary to find that you have an illness that may be with you for the rest of your life. Please know that many of us, who have more than one overlapping disease, who manage to maintain some normalcy in our lives. You will need to make some lifestyle changes in order to help you to live with this disease and we are here to help you through those changes and to give you suggestions and advice on how to navigate through those changes.
You will find that almost all of us suffer from more than one overlapping disease. It is a well known fact that once you develop one auto-immune disorder, you are more prone to developing others. You are not alone in this issue at all.
I am so glad that you found us and that you decided to join us. I hope that we can be helpful to you and that you find that you are amongst a group of people who are understanding, comforting, and are a wealth of information!!
Peace and Blessings
Look For The Good and Praise It!
