This blog is intended to chronicle my experiences with Polymyositis, a chronic autoimmune disease that involves the body's own immune system attacking and inflaming its muscles, resulting in debilitating weakness and other complications. I hope to provide a resource for anybody looking to others' experiences with the disease.
I saw this blog article on Facebook this morning, about some things people living with lupus think and experience, but that no one really knows about on the outside. It spoke to me, especially during a time when I am feeling about "80% of my pre-disease self". Many of these things really resonated with me, as lately it's been so hard to present myself as a happy, normal, working, vibrant person. And then I thought of all of those parents and friends who love and support us with these realities in mind. As always, I am grateful for you.
