Safe to have kids???

What are the options for someone who has SS and someone with trait? Can they still have kids? If so, what are the options for the kids if they do have the disease? Are there better treatment options to have a normal life?

Not at all a good thing, major chance your kids will get the disease! I have a rare version and my daughter got RA and thyroid disease from me. One of my parents had the trait and the other the disease. I'm a hot medical mess, had a stroke at 6 yrs old in and out of hospital constantly. I just turned 43 saturday, I am now considered palliative. And that's not having the full disease. My version only affects 1 percent of the population. Believe me no one wants to be that special.

What’s your version?
