Auto immune diseases runs rampant on my family side of the family. My father passed away with complications of Lupus Nephritis & SLE in 1994 he was 55. In 1999 my daughter at the age of 9 was diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis and SLE class III, Sjogren Syndrome at the age 7, Protein deficiency C&S. age 15 and a history of strokes my daughter has had 7 strokes since the age 18 and she is now 29. All glory to God you wouldn't be able to tell my looking at her. My Sister passed away with Devic's Disease with was diagnosed, shortly before she passed, she was initially diagnosed with M.S years before her passing 11 year's ago she would have been 61. Another sister have Sarcoidosis she is 55 and my youngest sister who is 48 had neuropathy, diabetes, fibromyalgia and had 5 bypass open heart surgery 4 years ago. Both of my brothers age 60 and 58 has Rheumatoid and I am 53 had invasive back surgery July 2016, was diagnosed with Rheumatoid 4years ago and Fibromyalgia not quite a year. My siblings and I have the same Mom and Dad, there is six of us and all of us have or had some type of auto immune disease. All of my life I cared for someone mainly family members and now I can hardly care for myself, What use ti take me one6 day to do is equal to a week worth of planning and doing. I feel pitiful.
