Hi all I am 44 (lady though questionable) and from Norfolk with 3 lovely (mostly) kids spanning 3nearly 4 to my 16 yr old just doing his GCSEs.
In 1994 I became bed ridden overnight which ended up with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. It took me years to conquer the symptoms enough.
in 2005 while just 4 weeks pregnant I contracted a virus which attacked my organs and I very nearly died.
This one event had 3 (most likely) outcomes, I lost a twin, my pregnancy was a nightmare and my daughter had many issues due to a blip in development and I nearly lost her many times. And I got autoimmune hepatitis.
So zoom forwards 9 years I am on 100mg Azathioprine and 10mg Pred. I started the gym last year and have fetching biceps and lost 2 stone (take that steroids) my daughter is amazing with no long term effects though she has had 4 surgeries and more to come.
My liver is ok but never been under control no cirrhosis at last check.
I do not dwell as I have been fighting ill health for 21 years, I have a lovely job and life is good. Just really painful and tiring sometimes.
I have a consultant visit next week so lets see whats next...
I tried brevity. ..
