This is a story about the people who have autoimmune diseases:
There was a bunch of happy people, big, little, fat, skinny, tall and short, at a party in a big room. With balloons, silly hats, cupcakes, candy, clowns, ballerinas, super heroes and music. They played games and ate anything they wanted. Some danced, some told jokes and everyone smiled.
All of sudden a big scary monster came into the party. Everyone screamed and tried to run away, but he was too fast. He made them stay in the big room. He took away all of the food and drinks, all of the fun party games and decorations. And he turned off the music. Everyone was afraid and sad. Soon the monster got bored, so he turned the music back on. Then he got hungry and brought the food back in. Then he was tired and he left the party room and went to his cave to go to sleep.
The people grabbed the balloons, streamers and games. They ate and drank. All of them felt tired and they slept. They hurt all over, so they took medicine to feel better. And the party kept on going. More people came and joined in. The new people slept and rested when they were tired and took medicine when they hurt. Soon doctors and nurses came to help the people. The music played. They brought more balloons, party games, cookies and cake. And everyone smiled.
