    A quick explanation to my friends why I go missing from time to time..i have MCTD as most members know with 10+ overlapping autoimmune diseases.
    I've been in and out of hospital having low infusions from a drug I refused 3yrs ago..as I had lung infection which kicked my kidneys off, as I have organ involvement and to calm it all down they was giving me prednisone not a nice drug or side affects, so I've been in and out of the day unit.

    So if I go missing from time to time, it's not through ignorance and not being bothered to come on, it's because with so many issues overlapping my health gets worse.

    :heart: you all and the forum [​IMG]

    Yes but you know what that will be underneath shade :frustrated:

    Thank you @Frank @Ronni @eileen and @carolyn slowly getting there, till the next issue arises.:)
    Yes I have a lot of complications that followed from birth but as I get older they get more stressful :)
