    cheers..
    Mitte... If you don't me asking, why is your immune system so high? I'm just curious, as my hubby has a similar illness.

    How awesome that you won a holiday! Hope you have a good time!

    Thanks CBM !

    As for my immunity problem, I have to have it 'turned down' because I have an autoimmune problem... The result being that my immune sys attacks my skin which is not a good thing..

    Thanks for the response Mitte. I find these autoimmune diseases quite interesting atm, as hubby was diagnosed with Wegeners Granulomatosis late last year, which means his immune system attacks his blood cells... or, er, something like that. (TBH I don't really know what it is). I had no idea they could lower your immune system like that - wow! Hubby's option if the WG gets really bad is huge doses of the drugs they give transplant patients.

    Is there much known about your problem?

    A lot of research goes into my problem, but yet, the cause is open to speculation.. No one knows why yet..

    Bucketting down with rain here, and I have to go into Sydney to pick up a boarder. Great, the roads will be horrendous! Hoping we don't get storms while I'm out, was bad enough last night with lots of sooking dogs.

    C&B, I have an auto-immune issue but it is VERY minor compared to what both your husband and Mitte are dealing with. mine is alopecea arearta, where the auto-immune system attacks your own body and results in your frigging hair falling out and leaving bald patches everywhere.

    It's in check now, has come back again a few times, so have had to try and change how I deal with stressful situations. I so hope all goes well for your husband.
