  1. Hello…..we we not alone…I’m a makeup artist in the Los Angeles area…climbed my way up to national t.v. and then had the rug taken from under me in 2013 when I was finally diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. Note:I had been feeling sick since 2010!

    1. Hi Monica! Thanks for stopping by to share your story. I’m sorry to hear about your battle with with your auto immune disease. I find that once your body is active it can be years before it goes into remission. Definitely keep in touch even if it’s to vent. Plus my humor now is so different cuz everyday it’s something different my body goes through that I now laugh at it. Others don’t get the humor. It’s enough as women our bodies change add an auto immune all you can do is laugh
