Another "Need a nasty disease" post

I've been browsing the illnesses to order tag and haven't really come much closer to what I'm looking for.

What I need is some sort of terminal illness that could potentially drag out longer for some patients than others.

Ideally, I'd like something that might show up around childhood, and let the character have "good" days and "bad" days; preferably where the good outnumber the bad, or at least span long enough to let the character have a somewhat normal existence between showing symptoms.

Setting is modern Britain, probably around London or so.

TIA


ETA: It's never Lupus. Apparently it is! Thanks!
