I don't really know where to start and I'm likely to edit this a few times at least as I realize I've left something out. The primary disease that brings me here is Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. This disease is incurable and terminal. At the moment, the only fight against it is lung transplantation. I do not currently qualify due to overactive autoimmune diseases, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Sjögren's Syndrome.
I will be updating this site and adding information as I can. Stay tuned!!
So many of you who know me may be wondering what happened all of a sudden. Quite honestly, it hasn't been anything sudden about my current circumstances.
In 2005, I was finally diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis after a long battle with such painful situations. I had many health issues going on at the time due to my ability to take such good care of others whilst neglecting myself.
I was treated with steroids and biologics at the beginning of my RA battle. After getting a positive response, I was tapered off of the steroids. This was in no way an immediate action.
