What a weird topic! But I guess I might as well post. ^ Same. I quite literally would not be alive today without Remicaid. (Which leaves me kind of screwed if the recent health care reforms are overturned, since private insurers have the right to reject me for a "preexisting condition." Once I'm 26 years old, I'll need to either have a job that comes with health insurance, or spend $120,000 a year on medical expenses.)

How auto-immune are we talking? Athritis and allergies are caused by the immune system after all.

I'm not worried about people who don't really have a real auto-immune disease leeching the many, many benefits of membership here.

Well Type 1 Hypersensitivity ranges from "pinapples make my throat itch if i eat too many" to "If i touch that i will go into anaphylactic shock"

Peanuts, for instance, are not in themselves harmful. I would consider it a disorder if your immune system tries to kill you for eating peanut butter.

Anyways, I havnt manifested anything at my age but my family history is of autoimmune disorders of the thyroid after about 35.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
