Re: Self attacking auto immune disorder

hi indianmomoftwo: i just wanted to say that you aren't alone on this. i too have auto immune disease. my body is attacking my thyroid. so i'm feeling a whole bunch of weird symptoms. it's real hard at first but as soon as you start knowing more and more about it, it does get a little better. but just like what everyone pretty much mentioned...talk to ur doctor about it. do some research on what specifically u have. healthboards are here for a support group. the thing that seems difficult for me right now is my hair is falling out. i mean...more than usual. i still have a full set but its depressing. i am trying to keep positive, but at times like this, it really does take a toll. prayer also works. i just got done praying myself (because i was having some anxiety coming on) and now it subsided. goodluck.
