"Any fool can Know. The point is to understand" - Albert Einstein

Mom + Autoimmune = not all bad news.

Being a woman with and autoimmune disease and a mother at the same time isn’t all bad news!

women make up about 75 percent of autoimmune disease diagnoses, this means many sufferers of chronic illness are also raising children.

It’s common for women to feel disappointed or inferior because they are not the kind of mom they had envisioned. But the perfect mom is an
unattainable myth, and it’s possible your illness is even cultivating good qualities in your children. Food for though.
