I decided to start the group because I know that there are a lot of people out there, like myself, who are suffering from an autoimmune illness. I think that this group would benefit from being able to share with others and help them to deal with their everyday obstacles in life. Not everyone can understand what a person with an autoimmune illness experiences on a daily basis, unless he or she has been diagnosed with one. People should join this group to encourage others to be positive and to help those who are not, to reach their full potential, while dealing with the illness that they have. Remember, each of us has only one life to live, no matter what we are dealt with. It's your choice how to live it and I think that by joining this group we could all benefit from having a support group to help one another.
