Self attacking auto immune disorder

Hi. I saw my endocrinologist today and he told me, ( which i suspected ) i have an auto immune disorder , where my body attacks its self. He said this is why I had a hystorectomy and my female organs , they were almost all much.and this is what caused 10 miscarriages.
My question is...what else can i expect? I have always been sickly, something always wrong. ( blood test for years now have shown the high anti-bodies ) And now i am developing dark brown/black spots on my body which are being biopsied.
With this self attacking immune disorder, what does it all really mean? I didn't have much time to talk to dr. see him again in few weeks to discuss more. But now i am scared. Like does this mean i need to stay away from sick people do i get no new tattoos? What do i do?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. i am only 27 with 3 year old twins ( from surrogacy ) and scared i am going to die.
