MCTD won't kill you, neither will UCTD or Lupus. Try to stay in the present, that is, what can you do today? And do it -- don't worry about
the future. You can worry later if it becomes necessary.
Just be patient until the rheumy appt. Meanwhile make a list of all your symptoms, concerns, and current medications to take with you to the appt.
Stop reading the internet! None of these 3 autoimmune illnesses act the same in every person, symptoms range from very mild to much worse. It's all about how you feel
and getting symptoms alleviated. The dx isn't that important, and no-one elses symptoms or experiences will match yours.
Stay calm. Stressing/worrying will make everything worse!
