Dear Rosie,

Hi it is Judy. I hope you are feeling well.
On the arthritis forum we have had a new member who has some questions and is not sure which forum to post on.
She has several conditions. One of her conditions is Mixed connective tissue disorder. I noticed that at the bottom of your posts you list undiffirentiated connective tissue disorder. Do you know if these two conditions are similar? Sorry, but I am really curious to know what these conditions are. I am not responding well to the new treatment they have me on for psoriatric arthritis and fibromyalgia. I thought if you gave me some information on what this disease was, perhaps it might explain the horrible pain I am in. I realize this will take some time so no rush, just if you get a few extra minutes. I hope your Dad is doing well and enjoying his crafts and little outings. I keep him, you and all of your family in my prayers.
God Bless you now and always,

Hey Judy!!

sorry . . . I haven't been on-line much lately. Computer problems.

Thanks for your prayers sis . . . it means so much to me. You are sooo sweet!

Yes . . . UCTD and MCTD are related. Mixed means that one has more than two connective tissue diseases (like lupus, scleroderma and RA). UCTD means that you have manifestations of these diseases but the doc can't pin-point which one(s) you have. These issues are all auto-immune (meaning the body attacks itself).

You poor thing . . . sorry you are still in so much pain. Please tell me about it sis.

We (one brother and I) got mom to take a three day visit to her home-town (a 6 hour drive). One of my sisters drove with her. Brother and I took turns staying with dad. He did very well and mom had a very nice time away. It seems to have been good for her.
