But I am sick, a diary of my invisible illnesses …

I currently have four autoimmune diseases.

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

This was diagnosed in 1994 when I was pregnant with my son.  I saw an endocrinologist when I was pregnant and then he dismissed me after.  I’ve only been under my family doctor’s care for most of the time.

Type 1.5 Diabetes or Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults or LADA

I was diagnosed with this in April of 2012.  I was first diagnosed as a type 2 but when I saw my new endo I was then told I was a LADA or a type 1.5 or a progressing type one.  I had never heard of it but it’s the adult version of diabetes it just takes everyone a different amount of time for the body to kill the pancreas.  I am currently on three different pills to control the diabetes and have been begging for insulin for about a year now.


This has been diagnosed in November of 2014 but it’s been three years of feeling like I have the flu.  No one test or person is the same with Lupus and mine seems to not like my liver.   I get only a faint butterfly rash on my face and it comes and goes.  I’ve had times where I’ve slept for two days straight and taking a shower means I have to nap afterwords sometimes.  I’ve been delayed being put on Plaquenil because of the liver issue that isn’t an issue.


This is my Rheumatologist’s catch all for my other symptoms.

Chronic Pain

Chronic Migraines
