Nothing can ruin a backyard get-together faster than a swarm of mosquitoes. So, each summer, we prepare to do battle: body sprays, yard sprays, citronella candles...yet even with all these expensive weapons we still end up covered in bug bites!
After what felt like a million rounds of blood work, and 15-20 doctors, I learned that it wasn't the spider bite at all that was causing my pain. I had lupus -- an autoimmune disease that has attacked my kidneys, central nervous system and other parts of my body. They told me there's no known cure.
