lesson about autoimmune diseases. It takes an average of three years
and five doctors for a person to get a proper diagnosis of an autoimmune
disease. It is a disease where instead of your white blood cells
protecting your body from invaders, they turn around and attack your
cells, tissues and organs. Chronic fatigue is another symptom. It is not
a cold or the flu, you will never get better, and even a nap will not
help. Just eating a salad and hitting the gym won’t slim
your face or get the pounds off. Sleeping 10 hours doesn’t leave you
well rested, ever. The last minute changes in plans because that “just
got ran over” feeling never makes appointments, it just walks in
whenever you aren’t ready. Painful joints, muscles and bones, dry skin,
breaking hair, hair loss, mood swings, and depression are just the tip
of the iceberg. You are also prone to having multiple autoimmune
diseases, they typically come in pairs of two. You easily catch viral
and bacterial infections. You have days where no matter how hard you
try, you just can’t smile for anyone.

I urge you to think twice before passing judgment and thinking our
nation is overreacting to the extra measures being taken to curb the
spread of this virus. YOU might be able to recover from it no problem
however, carry it to someone with an autoimmune disease and that
individual won’t be as lucky.
