I am really glad you joined us. I was just thinking, treatments can certainly help your morphea and probably even stop it from spreading, too. But I am hoping at the same time that you already have, or are developing, a plan to cope with the emotional fall out over it. It's entirely normal for us to isolate ourselves and become depressed over any illness, and all the more likely when the illness affects our looks or our activities.
However, just because it happens, and its a natural course, doesn't mean it has to stay that way! It's possible and even necessary to have morphea -- even on your face -- and still be happy and with a fulfilling and broad social circle. Many people even with the harshest form of en coup de sabre -- and other figure-altering conditions, such as survivors of fire or amputations -- have established great careers, married, had children, etc. The thing is, it's neither easy nor natural to do so. It typically involves counseling, medications, lifestyle changes, support networks, and the simple sheer daring to believe that what we want is possible.
You've made the perfect first step by joining Sclero Forums, and starting to seek out an expert and some appropriate medical care. I'd like to suggest that you don't stop there! You are entitled to a happy, exciting, and fulfilling life, chock full of all the happiness your heart can contain. You can be an inspiring example to others with morphea, and a living embodiment of "when life hands you lemons, make lemonade!"
If you aren't yet fully addressing the issues of isolation and depression (or anyone who is reading this is in a similar bind), then I encourage you to set an appointment with your primary care doctor, right away, to get an evaluation, referral, or care plan. There's not just a light at the end of the tunnel for you -- there is also fun, laughter, friendship, love, and adventure! The world and its many joys are not made only for the Perfect People. In fact, I daresay, us imperfect ones often find much more true joy and satisfaction in life, probably because it doesn't just fall in our laps. We have to really dig for it, which makes it all the more precious, and all the more real.
And we'll happily be here for you, all along the way, as you now begin healing your skin, and your heart, and your life. No more regrets. You're in a safe place now, and we'll all just move forward from here, okay?
