Let's talk about this. I've had Diabetes forEVER and have just started realizing how many other aspects of life are effected by my compromised immune system. I have eczema CONSTANTLY. That little itchy red rash? YA. That is apparently caused by a whacked-out immune system attacking your body when it shouldn't. Does that sound familiar to anyone? Cuz it should, since that's how we got Diabetes. I also have asthma, which is apparently the same story. I am feeling very lucky that I'm mad about a rash though, as opposed to Cyliac Disease. Still, I hate my immune system and tonight I'm extra pissed because I itch and it never goes away. Does anyone share my feelings, or have any ideas for how to calm your flaming skin? I'm mostly wondering if this happens to all of us T1Ds? My friends have no idea what its like to have a body that's in constant attack mode!
Thanks a lot, immune system. You're at the top of my s*** list tonight.
