March is Autoimmune Awareness Month


There are MANY (too many 😢) AI disorders/diseases and throughout this month we (many on social media) will be highlighting those as well as where the fight is at to bring more awareness of them, as well as finding causes, cures and research of various treatments.

An autoimmune disease, for example, would be rheumatoid arthritis, occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body’s tissues.

In IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) the immune system is attacking the gastrointestinal tract (or as I will call it, anywhere from “tongue to tail”).

I lost my colon due to IBD and reoccurring intestinal bacterial infection, “cdiff” (C. diff or Clostridium Difficile). For more info on C. diff:

Has an autoimmune disease affected you or someone you love?

Did you know even pets can develop autoimmune conditions?

I’m listing a few AI’s that I’ve been diagnosed with in the last eight years.

Feel free to share so we can bring awareness.

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Sjogren’s
