Hi all,


Haven't been around in ages. Just thought I would pop back in and see how everyone was doing. Haven't really been doing any types of forums for awhile as I was getting a bit depressed by some of the stuff. But that issue has been resolved, really busy with many new craft projects and I just got a new wheelchair so am able to get out and about much more now. Good to see many of the same faces are still here. Not looking forward to the cold weather but have all my stock of cold reducers to hand. Hope everyone is doing ok.

Hi Jean,

I am dreading the cold as well. Sometimes I have to take a break from things, too. I think we all do. Good to see you back.

Hi Jean


Good to know you have kept yourself busy with your crafts and having a new wheelchair must make life easier for you.


I'm not looking forward to the cold either and am already wearing gloves, we have been lucky really because its been mild here but it has definitely got a lot colder this last weekend.

Hello Jean


Welcome back! What kinda wheelchair have you got? Aren't they fab, whatever type, because the give us back a sort of mobility. Did you resist getting one of just go with the flow? Looking back I was totally deluded when I chose my first one thinking I'd need it for maybe a year, 6 later I have a powered chair for downstairs and outside, self propelled for the much smaller upstairs and now a stair lift. The one bought for "just a year" takes me from foot of stairs to car door, I can't even walk that distance anymore.


At the risk of being booed and hissed at, I am looking forward to the colder weather, I get too hot you see...sorry!


Take care.

Hi Jean,


Welcome back to Sclero Forums!  I'm delighted to hear you have a wheelchair.  You will be able to see more of the world and be more active all around.


Crafting is fantastic, isn't it?  I think it should be listed as a proven treatment for scleroderma. Anything at all that calms us or lifts our spirits should be first on our to-do list, don't you think?  Maybe you can post some pictures of your crafts in our photo gallery, and post about them in our Fun & Friendship forum (and link to the photos).


And now that you've found us again, don't be a stranger, okay?  It's great to have you back!



Warm Hugs,

Hi Jean,


Thanks for checking in. It's always nice to hear from others now and then. I can understand your reasoning for take a break though. I get like that as well. Projects are always a good diversion!
