It’s all started at 3 years old..

It started early in life. At 3 I couldn’t move my arms, legs, due to rheumatoid arthritis. OMG! Painful, disabling nightmare in reality. Thanks to my Mom and progressive science I was saved from pain in my deformed by RA (rheumatoid arthritis) joints. Doctor warned Mom RA can return 20-30 years later.

    Hi Kelly!
    Thank you so much for you response. Since the age of 3 I’ve been struggling with RA and learned a lot about dealing/ living/ healing/ coping with my condition.
    20 years later I was diagnosed with MS(Multiple Sclerosis).
    I got confirmed by Terry Wahls, M.D., the author of “The Wahls Protocol”, that it is very common to pick up additional autoimmune diagnoses each decade of life.
    I hope, people like me, who has it shared their stories. I know girl with MS and Lupus.
    My MS/ RA condition is terrible, but Lupus/MS can be even worse.
    Sorry for shearing all the information with you.
