diagnosed with Autoimmune Hepatitis in June 2008, acquired Diabetes whilst taking Prednisolone, and then R. Arthritis dwhilst taking Azathioprine. Have Ascites due to Cirrhossis and had a P.E then fluid on my lungs.
Diagnosed with Sjorgrens syndrome in March 2009 although have had symptons of dry mouth and dry eyes for over 6 yrs
None of it controlled or maintained with medications as all the drugs have given me bad side affects and cause my liver more stress so now just on pred when having flare ups.
Still trying to stay up and focussed, enjoyed lots of outdoor activities pre 2008 and trying to keep some of them going (although not to the same limit now due to the fatigue) Recently lost my job due to being unable to accomplish most of the duties on my contract, so now feel like ive been put out to pasture lol - wouldnt be so bad if people didnt keep telling me how well I look ! (am a permanent yellow colour lol and yeh I look like im on a permanent holiday but inside im in turmoil and worn out)
am looking to chat to people who are knowledgable about all the above lol or failing that just looking to chat to people about anything, all the above makes me sound a right misery gggrrrrrrrr but I am actually an optimist with (as my friends say - " great sense of humour")
Thanks for reading and stay well people.
