I began my blog in late 2008 partially as an attempt to archive my experiences in learning to cook gluten free. I also wanted to spread the word that untreated celiac disease can lead to other autoimmune diseases, so eating gluten free is not only key to controlling current symptoms, but is crucial for prevention of the future "triggering" of autoimmune disorders. By December 2008 I...

When contemplating about writing an “about me” section that would talk about my diagnoses and the effect that they have had on my life. Every time I start to type, I am not sure what it is that I want to say. I just know that what I have to say has to have a profound effect on those reading the words and having all the same questions that I have had for some many years and even the...

Somewhere around November 18th or 19th of 2007, I started feeling what I thought were Carpal Tunnel symptoms in my right hand. The symptoms included: tingling of my fingers, numbness, and I was having trouble typing. I went out and bought wrist guards, and things designed to help CT patients. The symptoms continued for about two weeks and I promised I?d visit the doctor after Thanksgiving....

I have sarcoidosis which is an autoimmune disease which can effect any organ system in the body.  I was originally diagnosed in 1990 with a lung biopsy.  I started with neurosarcoidosis in 2000, and have been on disability since then. I have battled the disease with Prednisone on and off over the years, and am now on chronic chemotherapy meds for a chronic aseptic meningitis from...

My name is Michelle. I love all of the lovely things in life. And the lovely things in life love me too, I suppose. Or one would assume, since I’ve been fortunate to experience many lovely things. However, life wasn’t always so lovely. When I look back at my teenage years, I could use the word “angst”, just as easily as an Stephen Chobsky, or a Haulden...

I am 37 and was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in October 2009. As a result of having Lyme, I developed autoimmune diseases such as endometriosis in 2003, and then in 2006-08, I developed chronic digestive issues and interstitial cystitis. I am thankful that I found a doctor that suspected Lyme, otherwise I would still be in rotation with gastroenterologist and urologist who refused to believe my...

Helena, Montana
Three months after my first child was born, I was diagnosed with sarcoidosis, an autoimmune disease. Although sarcoidosis spontaneously remits in many cases, I developed a chronic form of the disease in multiple organs-- my brain, heart, lungs, liver, cranial nerves, lymph nodes, and bones. Becoming chronically ill at the same time that I am learning the ropes of motherhood has been like...

I'm a person living with thyroid disease. I went 4 or 5 years being mis/undiagnosed until 2003. My blog Life With Hashi chronicles my daily struggle with the Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, weight loss efforts, and any health information that I find of interest. It's my belief that those living with an autoimmune disease be their own patient advocate. Learn as much as you can so that you are...
