Today I turned the big 60.

I was diagnosed the day before my birthday 4 years ago. After looking up scleroderma on the internet I was kinda feeling like I should get everything into place for my death.

Then I found sclero.org.


I would like to thank each and everyone of you for some smiles that I thought I would never be able to do again. Thank you for helping me explain this crazy disease to my family and friends and thank all you the most for learning that scleroderma is not a death sentence and that there is life after scleroderma.

May I send my good thoughts to each of you, my friends.

Happy belated B-day Quiltfairy! :you-rock:


Often the consensus is that scleroderma gives us one really good thing, people! As in all the sclerodermains you now know and who now know you! My husband and I meet with people with scleroderma and their caregivers, they are all FAB people, much like people here, none of whom would we have the privilege and pleasure of knowing but for scleroderma. We consider this a major bonus!


Take care.
