Fellow sjoggie Laura C. Strom,  licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist, has written a thought provoking article entitled: An ACE Up Your Sleeve -- The surprising story behind adult illness and disability - implications for parents.

You can read her article here.

Interesting. Although my ACE (Adverse Childhood Events) score would be zero, still I'm certain that for others, trauma could definitely be a trigger for autoimmune disease when accompanied by other risk factors such as family history of autoimmune disease and viral illnesses. Check it out.

Wierd article. Except for a very rare spanking I have had none of these events and honestly I don't recall having been traumatized by being spanked. I am afraid this article is one of the very few I have come across that I put very little thought to but thanks for sharing!
