Ok, this might sound crazy, but I am desperate! Every since 1997 I have been sick all winter long. I just know that for 3 months out of the year I am going to ill. For example, this winter, I have had 3 respiratory infections, pancreatitis, kidney infection, 2 GI infections, tons of joint aches and lots and lots of fatigue. I live in Seattle. My father is also sick all winter and he normally gets a respiratory infection, which turns into bronchitis and then to pneumonia. He lives in Salt Lake City. We both have lupus (does not affect our skin at all though).
I have 5 little children and for me to be so sick is BAD. My husband ends up missing tons of work, my kids watch WAY too much Disney and my support system gets stretched to the max.
In the warmer months, I RARELY get sick, I am full of energy and do great.
So here is my question: If I move to place that does not have winters (ie Arizona) will I be cured? Will I only rarely get sick because it will be like a year round summer? I would be willing to do it in a heart-beat if I knew it would work but I fear uprooting my family at great emotional and financial expense if it does not end up helping.
Any advice, opinions, would be appreciated!
