My teen daughter has Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, (Lupus) which means multiple overlapping autoimmune diseases. She has Dermatomyositis, & Juvenile Arthritis. Yup, arthritis. She turns purple when her hands and feet get cold, which can happen from A/C. Her skin also gets extra tight in places, called scleroderma. She can't wear any shoes without socks unless the sides are open. Join us on our journey of learning, dealing and living with these issues.
