This is my personal story, from the beginning, as best I can recall. I was born with a rare genetic mutation that basically made my immune system go haywire. We did not know I had this condition until finally getting a concrete diagnosis through in-depth genetic testing following years of health problems. Before that point, we just called it the conditions it presented as: idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura (ITP), Evan's syndrome (ES), and undifferentiated primary immunodeficiency.
Now that we know exactly what is causing my problems, we are finally on the right track to making sure I am never as sick as I was.
