Not diagnosed - But pretty sure I will be

I have listened to several podcasts covering autoimmune and yours by far has been the most helpful! Thank you for explaining so many small things that no one else covers.

Christy from New Jersey ,

Thank you. I’m not alone.

I’m 44 and got diagnosed late in 2016. Blab-27 positive. I’ve been listening to these podcasts all night, because I’m in severe joint and back pain. I’m on inflectra every 6 weeks. Keep up the good work I’m learning so much. I think I’m going to invest in a tens unit.

holly SAHM g ,

Thank you for hope

I have been listening to this podcast ever since I was diagnosed in January 2022. I have been feeling so down about not being able to take care of my two children under two. You mentioned in the podcast today that your children won’t know what they are missing out on and won’t resent you for it. I can’t tell you how much I needed to hear that. I have been in pain their whole lives and limited to what I can do. Thankfully they will not know me any other way and will love me for what I can do. Thanks for giving me this much needed perspective!
