What fun - I have a rare disease!

It's no biggie and far from fatal. I knew I had the condition, I didn't know it was rare.

So here's the deal. Reading the Health and Science special section this morning there was a short article titled "Rare diseases may be little seen but they get a day of their own".

That day is February 28th and one of the diseases listed in the second paragraph is granuloma annulare and I've got that!

Aside from being somewhat unattractive it has no affect on my life at all.  It's cause is somewhat nebulous but I do have one of the conditions thought to be connected - thyroid disease (Hashimoto's Disease).

Anyway - fun to know I have a rare disease.
