Truly. What.Are.You.Doing?

Thank you for lowering my CPK levels suggesting that you have tamed some of my rogue antibodies. But what in the world are you doing to my body? In just 6 weeks of having you in my life you have raised my white blood cell count, raised my neutrophils and lymphocytes, spiked my glucose levels and produced keytones. 6 weeks. You are in my body causing harm. Affecting systems of my body that you are not “supposed” to touch. You were created in hopes to tame my immune system and while you may be doing just that, you are sending other systems within my body into a tailspin. Setting my body up for more confusion on how to work and then what? You can cause diabetes? Osteoporosis? Heart disease? Other illnesses? Cancers? Infections? ……………How are you the “go to” medication in 2017 to tame an autoimmune disease? You are poison to my body. You are poison to our bodies? “Are you having any chest pain and difficulty breathing?” YES! Actually, I am. “It’s time to start tapering you off of the prednisone”…………………………………..            ………………………………..      …………………………………….

Many people fall to heart disease as a result of autoimmune diseases. I truly wonder, how much is the actual disease causing that, and how much is actually you as the cause? Because in the 6 weeks that you have resided in my body………you have made your presence profoundly known. My hands never stop shaking. My ability to sit still is nonexistent. I feel as though I could run marathon after marathon. Why am I suddenly craving food constantly yet losing weight? Why am I craving the need to smoke cigarette after cigarette. This reminds me a lot of a lethal drug…….amphetamine. I do not know what you are comprised of exactly and I refuse to Google you. My body is who I trust. And whatever you are, is not not good. What ever you are made of produces an identical physiological affect of stimulant drugs. Those drugs that people have heart attacks and strokes from. Those drugs that cause people to have heart disease and become hyper-stimulated both psychologically and physiologically. There is nothing safe about you. I am happy that you will be exiting soon and hoping you never have to return although I know that it is a possibility.

Our time is now. This cannot be the acceptable treatment for autoimmunity. We can and will win this fight. We have people fighting so hard for us. We have to do our part and help them, help us. Because what we have today, is lethal and unacceptable.
