Just came on for a moment to check in. Have been getting slowly worse due to liver, enzymes elevated all the time and now are looking at PBC due to positive AMA. Connective tissue disease worse, scleroderma in the forearms, rheumatoid fingers developing, psoriatic arthritis in the knees and elbows, along with the vitiligo I think they could make an autoimmune skin disease chart just from me. Sjogrens still there. I've had some improvement in GI taking pancreatic enzymes per my rheumies recommendation. tired alot. Life is good, though, doing everything to stay away from docs and hospitals.
My mom had pancreatic cancer and they say it is hereditary and due to her autoimmune disease, which I don't get. She was at Moffitt and had her pancreas removed and part of it sewn on to her liver. She then had a stroke and I was there to help her through just after it happened. It was really hard, she had quite an incision and was wanting to get up and leave. I'm glad I could be there, though.
So I'm just worn out, too worn out to log in sometimes. Just trying to enjoy the cool weather while we still have it.
