Lab tests indicate that I have autoimmune gastritis in addition to Type 1 diabetes. There are signs of Hashimoto’s as well. Celiac tests are not yet available.
This … is awful. I know that many people live complication-free with Hashimoto’s once the dosage is right. But, autoimmune gastritis is associated with a significant increase in risk for stomach cancer. And, having 3 autoimmune diseases, I fear the risk of getting more is further increased. I feel like this is the end, that I’ll never get back to being able to enjoy life, that my fate is sealed and soon my ■■■■■■ immune system will kill me off slowly. Who knows, maybe it will attack my liver next…
Sorry, I feel so down right now
Any of you live with these autoimmune diseases, especially the autoimmune gastritis one? How bad is it?
