Hi, My name is Tanya. I'm 34 years old and I have Bechet's Disease. I was just officially diagnosed this year after a long often times strenuous journey of nearly 10 years. There were times when I thought I would never get an answer to the neverending cycle of ulcers,rashes,fevers and joint pain....or whatever else decided to show up. I went from being the social butterfly to being in a cocoon. Bounced from doctor to doctor (dermatologist, rheumatologist, hemotologist,infectious disease,etc...) no answers. Thankfully my primary doctor really went to bat for me, he researched and studied and low and behold he found the answer. Leave it to me to have some rare autoimmune /autoinflammatory disease. I can't ever do simple. Aside from the ulcers the uveitis was the clincher. So here I am now with this horrible disease that I wouldn't wish on anyone not even my worst enemy. However; I'm glad to finally have a name to put on this monster that I'm faced with every day.
