But you don't look sick....
"I quickly grabbed every spoon on the table; hell I grabbed spoons off of the other tables. I looked at her in the eyes and said "Here you go, you have Lupus"."
The author describes in an unusual, thought-provoking manner, what it is like to live with Lupus. The analogy could apply to many other Autoimmune Diseases. The site also contains other useful Lupus information.

Overcoming Fatigue
People describe fatigue in different ways. Some experience it as a feeling of low energy, as being too much effort to move, or feeling drained. Sometimes people describe it as "being lazy" and lacking in motivation. It is different from being sleepy though sometimes people say they are tired.
There are myriad medical conditions that are associated with fatigue. When some of these are treated, like anemia or hypothyroidism, energy level returns. Other conditions are not as easy to relieve, such as a low cardiac output from a serious heart attack or chronic disabling arthritis.
This article is an excellent guide with suggestions to overcoming those feelings of fatigue which are only too familiar to people with Autoimmune Disorders.

This is Real
"Invisible Illnesses are those where others don't instantly know that you have an illness. This means you don't necessarily use a walking stick or a wheelchair, or have any marks on your body that others would see, or have a big sticker on your forehead saying 'yes, i am ill!' Because of this and the fact that you are not necessarily tucked up in bed all the time, people tend to assume that you are perfectly healthy and have either recovered from whatever was ailing you, or you were never ill in the first place and are/were just being lazy."

Autoimmune Inner Ear Disease (AIED)
Autoimmune Inner Ear Disease (AIED) is a poorly understood syndrome of potentially reversible progressive sensorineural hearing loss with or without dizziness. The classic clinical presentation of this disease is with bilateral fluctuating progressive sensorineural hearing loss occurring over several months. Tinnitus (noises in the ear) and aural fullness, "pressure", may also occur as well as dizziness or vertigo.

Kidney Transplantation.
Autoimmune Disease can lead to kidney failure and transplant. This is a very interesting website about kidney transplants.
"We are a group of five second-year medical students at the University of Edinburgh. In this website we present the work we undertook as part of an anatomy project running over four weeks."
In this website, we aim to:
· Describe and document our dissection of the abdomen
· Describe the basic anatomy of some of the major abdominal structures
· Describe the anatomy of the kidneys
· Present the product of our extensive research on the topic of kidney transplantation"
