Autoimmune Disease Awareness

Some times I feel like a damn good rant and I feel one coming on right now.

I feel like crap today.

I started writing The Scleroderma Files shortly after I was diagnosed a couple of years ago.  I have now moved them to another one of my soapbox pages where the rant goes on.

OK, I have had Psoriasis since I was a  child; I was diagnosed (eventually) with Collagenous Colitis 20 odd years ago and arthritis decided to join the party around the same time.AI

These auto immunes just love to party.  The more the merrier.

“Yay! We’ve infiltrated another immune system!  Let’s go and shred it to bits!”


Millions of resilient working people soldier on every single day, often feeling like shit, who have to cope with one or more debilitating auto immune disease.  And, there are hundreds of the little ****ers.  A full list can be found at the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association’s website.

There … I feel better for getting things off my chest … and if any auto immune sufferer out there would like to rant to me on the subject … I make a bloody good ear.


‘Autoimmune diseases, specifically, now affect 24 million people and include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, thyroid disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and more. These are often addressed by powerful immune suppressing medication and not by addressing the cause. That’s like taking a lot of aspirin while you are standing on a tack. The treatment is not more aspirin or a strong immune suppressant, but removing the tack.’ Mark Hyman MD

  1. This is tough stuff! Mark Hyman speaks the truth. I have an autoimmune disease (possibly two-in progress of diagnosis), so I know what you are talking about, and how you feel. Have you heard of the autoimmune protocol or the Paleo approach by Sarah Ballantyne? I’m finding them helpful on my healing journey, and I also take medication as well for now. All the best to you, Jessica
