Autoimmune Article

There's a really interesting article over at Alternet today about Autoimmune diseases and how they are more prevalent than many popularly known cancers, but less recognizable by the American public.

Read it here

I didn't get to read the whole thing, but thanks for linking it.

I have Lichen Planus (in remission for 5 years now) and it's definitely not something I knew about...I don't know how long I had it, I was diagnosed with allergies, skin lice and a bunch of other stuff before someone decided to send me to a dermatologist who did a biopsy.

I got it treated and and, as I said, in remission now.

What's most scary is they don't know if my skin disease is a) pre-cancerous or b) stress relateds or more...we figured mine was stress caused as I don't have cancer...and 5 years later, as far as I am aware, still don't have cancer.

But the fear lingers that if it pops up again....what will be the cause. Keeps me up at night.

Hiya. I am interested in posting etc. over at chicks with dice. I am, however, a dude. Also, my post is really to help me get some/gauge the interest in people helping me beta test a LOST card game.

That cool with you? Please feel free to ask your other mod.

Either way, great community...thanks for the option.

Sure, go ahead. Just remember to say you got the okay from a mod - just in case anyone wants to give you any flack for posting (I don't think they will).
