I had to laugh.....recently I have been out for lunch on separate occassions with my best girlfriends,they are the best in the world!
On both these lunchdates a different man went up to each friend and said 'may I just say what a beautiful daughter you have madam!'
I am older than one friend and the same age as the other!Luckily they laughed! :lol:
As you all know this side effect of scleroderma can give the skin a wrinkle free look,maybe the only 'benefit'(you know what I mean ;) )
much love

It's the $40,000.00 facelift we get free with the purchase of a lifetime of medications and doctor's visits.

It's better than a free cheese grater

That comment had to make you feel good! You are beautiful and disease can make us feel the opposite if we let it.

Hi Alexandra,

I had something similar happen in the ER in January. My son, who wasn't even 15 yet was sitting beside me, and a nurse asked if he was my husband. At 15, most mistake him for being between 18 to 20 years old, but there are mirrors in my house, and quite frankly they don't flatter me like that. Maybe they thought it was another Demi/Ashton thing going.

There are days that I would prefer a cheese grater though!

Best wishes to you,
Elehos

I do have to say you are one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen. I am still waiting for the smooth skin problem! :)
