I have a rare immune disorder called MCAS that basically makes me allergic to living. AMA!
My name is Mackenzie. I am a 20 year old college student living in Nebraska. In February, after routine allergy testing, I was diagnosed with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, a "rare" (more like just super underdiagnosed) immune disorder. I was born with MCAS, and have been living with it since. My disorder makes me have both severe and mild allergic reactions to virtually all foods, all scents, airborne particles, dust, mold, chemicals, elevation changes, vibrations, loud noises, flashing lights, exercise, fast heart rate, hormones, and even my own emotions! There is currently no known (or proposed) cure for MCAS.
My Twitter, which I use to advocate for chronic illness and disability, to discuss my journey with MCAS, and to hold lives and such with other MCAS patients, can be found here: https://twitter.com/MackWithMast?s=09
