Part of the terminology made sense to me, so I knew it had something to do with the liver. To get an idea of what your condition is about, I found this brief explanation on the Mayo Clinic site: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/primary-biliary-cirrhosis/DS00604

I know that lupus causes your body to attack itself. How are you being treated for you conditions, particularly the cirrhosis? What lifestyle changes have you had to make?
