About

October252008

My name is Lauren, and I’m a 26 year old with an unusual collection of autoimmune diseases that includes Polyarthritis, Autoimmune Pancreatitis, Autoimmune Hepatitis, Fibromyalgia, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, and IgA Deficiency, and Sjogren’s Syndrome with neurological involvement. I write about my struggles dealing with sometimes dangerous new treatments, balancing relationships with family and friends, my difficulty adapting to life in a wheelchair due to debilitating arthritis, and most importantly my quest to maintain hope and faith in myself through it all. I am also an avid scrapbooker, alternate reality gamer, and an aspiring novelist writing my first book – a coming of age story set in a dystopian future.
