I was born severely premature (almost 3 months early).
And I’m wondering if anyone knows if there is any connection between premature birth and subsequent diagnosis of autoimmune diseases.
I know I’ve suggested before that I refuse to look back on earlier parts of my life and question them.
However, until this point in my life, I’ve been relatively lucky health wise for a severely premature baby born in 1985.
So I find myself having to wonder if there is any correlation between my premature birth and my recent diagnosis with multiple connective tissue/autoimmune diseases.
I’m not sure what I’ll do with information about this, but as I’ve suggested before, I’m trying to put the pieces of this puzzle together and make some sense out of all this for myself.
