Questions and Answers

ARRC receives many requests to respond to questions about autoimmune illness.

Many questions are of a general wellbeing and health nature.  We have put together a selection of the most frequently asked questions and our response to those questions.  We understand that this list may not meet your specific need therefore we would like to offer you the opportunity to contact us with your specific question.  Some questions and responses will be shared at a later date on our website without personal identification.  Items will be posted with Initials, age and sex.

Life Stories

There is comfort found in knowing that you are not alone in living with Autoimmune illness.

To help with understanding the similarities and many different pathways taken in an Autoimmune journey ARRC would like to share some personal stories of illness and wellness.  ARRC invites you to share your story with us and others living with these illnesses.  Whether you are diagnosed with an autoimmune illness, a carer of someone diagnosed or a friend that has witnessed the wellness path taken, please consider sharing your experience.
