I can hardly believe that I've been a member of Sclero Forums for two years!! :emoticons-line-dance:

I joined these friendly and helpful forums just after I was diagnosed in July 2009 (having been 'lurking' for a little while previously) and haven't looked back since!! ;)

One of the 'bonuses' of having Scleroderma is that I've got to know some really lovely people; forced my idle brain to work again and learnt to count my blessings reading other members' touching and inspiring stories.

I raise a gin and tonic to everyone here on my second anniversary day......whatever did I do with myself before ISN? ;) :lol:

:balloons: Balloons and hugs don't seem like enough! Happy anniversary, Jo. I, for one, am really happy you got scleroderma so we could meet. :lol:

I'll raise a gin and tonic to you, but it had better wait a bit. If my hubby catches me hitting the gin at 7 AM, he might worry.

Hi Jo,

Congratulations on your second anniversary! :emoticon-congratulations:

I am honored to be your friend and you have helped me with medical issues when I was worried and didn't know what to do. You eased my anxieties. :emoticons-thankyou: Thank you my "dear friend" (((HUGS)))

Jo you're in the place to be! I've always said that one of the best things (maybe the only!) about having scleroderma is the people you meet...we're awesome! :woohoo:

Also I awfully glad you came!

Take care.

So very happy you are here with us, after all we really need to stick together :emoticon-congratulations:

Of course, I am biased, as you are my Most Favorite Twin from across the pond :happy-dance:

Just think...Had we not "found" each other HERE on ISN, we would likely have never "met" and discovered that we're Twins :wub:

Congratulations on your 2nd Anniversary, "our Jo"!
Special Hugs,
