Not Going There

Today's Prompt: Miracle Cure. Write a news style article about a miracle cure.

There are a hundred or more autoimmune diseases, all caused by an unexplained attack of the immune system on an otherwise working body. Millions and millions of people suffer with the chronic consequences.

These are the twenty I've heard of - and for most of them, know someone with. And many of us can claim more than one.

Take a moment and drink this in.

Addison's disease
Celiac disease
Crohn’s disease
Diabetes, Type 1
Graves' disease
Guillain-Barre syndrome
Hashimoto's disease
Multiple sclerosis
Peripheral neuropathy
Restless legs syndrome
Rheumatic fever
Rheumatoid arthritis
Sjogren's syndrome
Ulcerative colitis

Now I'm supposed to write about a miracle cure for autoimmune illness.

Funny, but I just can't pretend I'm that naive.
