Hi! My name is Michelle and I am 31 years old.
I have always struggled with my weight, and with my health. In middle school I was diagnosed with a reading disability and was told I would have trouble just making it through high-school. I worked my rear off and not only did I finish HS, I have my four year college degree. It was not easy, and was especially tough my senior year when I became ill.

Not long after I graduated college I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. ...
Hi! My name is Michelle and I am 31 years old.
I have always struggled with my weight, and with my health. In middle school I was diagnosed with a reading disability and was told I would have trouble just making it through high-school. I worked my rear off and not only did I finish HS, I have my four year college degree. It was not easy, and was especially tough my senior year when I became ill.

Not long after I graduated college I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, at the time, it was more "we don't really know what you have so we're going to call it fibromyalgia."
It's taken almost 8 years but I finally have a doctor who is willing to work with me. My new diagnosis of Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease has brought more questions than answers. Will it be Lupus? Rheumatoid Arthritis? Sjogren's Syndrome?

Whatever the result is, the answer is the same: don't give up! Strive to live healthier. And as my stepdad says, "exercise and drink water." (It's his answer to every question!)

Hi, I also have Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease. I also have the same questions about "What will it be?"

I found this info online if you are interested.

Nice to meet someone with the same thing. Also, check out a great auto-immune group, Lupus-Team butterfly for anyone with an auto-immune disease. It's very supportive.
