Our adventure begins….

At age four, I began my autoimmune mess. One body, one condition. Celiac disease.
By 23 I’d developed rheumatoid arthritis, a variant of chronic inflammatory demylinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), undifferentiated connective tissue disease (very lupus-like), and hashimoto’s disease (likely hashimoto’s encephalopathy). Were that not enough, I have probable autoimmune hepatitis, acid reflux, various anemias, hyper-mobility, and a whole supporting cast of symptoms.
Despite this I maintain, mine is a comic life, indeed.
