ovary only a tumor
Shared a friend, (also
a baby boomer)
mom worked in a furniture factory before I
was born: lots of paint and varnish
I grew up, my dad was in the painting
business and taught all my brothers how to
paint professionally. (He died of prostate
cancer) (One brother is very seriously
ill today - wound won't heal - FATIGUE)"
was born with only one ovary, the other
ovary was a tumor. At age 13 I
weighed 79 lbs and the tumor was 9 pounds of
that. I looked like one of the starving
children but with the tummy bulge on the
left side. When I got married, the
doctor advised us to have our children
early. We did."
daughter died of Lupus
after she was grown. She had endometriosis
and it was a miracle she could have a child
at all. She was never told that there
would be no more children - ovaries were
harmed - they were swollen to the size of

thinks the horrible headaches that she and
her mom and grandma have / had are just
'hereditary.' I suspect they were all
poisoned by 2-butoxyethanol type
doesn't think 2-butoxyethanol has harmed her

from flu-fatigue .... that was diagnosed as

Ask you doctor to test for immune
globulins & more
in the blood
things could be considered autoimmune?

hemolytic anemia, the body produces
autoantibodies to red blood cell membrane proteins. (size?
In diabetes mellitus,
autoantibodies are formed against insulin receptors.
Graves 's disease is
associated with autoantibodies to thyroid stimulating hormone
Pernicious anemia can
be caused when autoantibodies are formed against intrinsic
factor which is needed for vitamin B12 absorption.
have proposed that ALS may have an autoimmune basis.
following are the bases for their hypotheses:
of ALS patient sera have identified circulating
antibodies secreted by denervated muscle. These
antibodies inhibit the stimulation of the sprouting
of axons, the long arms of neurons which conduct
nervous impulses to other neurons throughout the
body (Onion 1998).
have found an immunoglobulin that affects the
conductance of neuronal voltage-activated calcium
channels which may induce an excessive release of
glutamate from nerve endings (Onion 1998).
studies of ALS patients found the presence of
antibodies that interact with motor neurons (Pestronk
et al. 1988a; Pestronk et al. 1988b; Pestronk et al.
1989; Niebroj-Dobosz et al. 1999).
Immune complexes have been found in spinal cords of
patients with ALS.
has been proposed that T cells, activated microglia,
and immunoglobulin G (IgG) within the spinal cord
lesions may be the primary event that leads to
tissue destruction in ALS.

you are dealing with an autoimmune issue
a virus? (Well
maybe the viruses, too, but not
the levels drop too low ...
the immune system is 'wearing out'
