Yep...thanks Kitty

I have Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) and Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis, and my sister and niece both have Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

We came from the shallow end of the gene pool huh?

Interesting article - thanks

This was very informative & I especially like the advice on getting a second, third or fourth opinion. For someone who never really got sick before & who has learned to channel stress, it is unfathomable to me to tell a supposed medical professional my history & have them think they need to give pills, pills, pills...to make you go away.

I'm sick of the cure most of all. They can stick their pills, prescription pads & ill will *admin edit* ******

Sorry...been in a foul mood all day...but...((breath in, breathe out))...blowin' it all away. LOL!

Great thread! I have MS, Systemic Lupus and Crohn's Disease, which makes a grand total of three!

I guess I'm what you'd call a Triple Whammy Case!
