We seem to have quite a few new members joining recently. I try to welcome each of you individually, but in case I have missed someone, please know that we are here for all of you and hope to eventually get the chance to say hello or give a hug.

This is the main Sclero Forum in which we focus on issues relating to scleroderma and related matters. In addition we have the Sclero Den and its subforums, Sclero Kitchen, Sclero Chat (with news about our live chat feature with schedules), and Getting to Know You. These were created to allow us to speak more casually in a social setting. Visiting these forums will allow you to share important family news, talk about recreation, share recipes and generally get to know each other better. Occasionally you may see a thread being moved into a forum where it is likely to get the right responses.

Our team of support specialists are volunteering from different time zones, so please be patient if your message doesn't show up right away. Please also take the time to read the Forum Guidelines which are linked at the top of every page. As it says in the guidelines, we are a wonderful resource for general support and information for people who are interested in scleroderma or related illnesses. Post to the list as often as you like, especially if it is to lend kindness or comfort to others.
Warm wishes,

I'd like to join Carrie in welcoming all the new members. It seems like someone new joins us everyday. Like all of our forum members, I wish none of us had a need to be here, but since that need does exists, it's great that there is a place like the ISN forums for each of us to come. You have found a great extension to your families. As most of you have already discovered, there is lots of support and tons of experience and reliable information.

Big Hugs to you all,

My warmest welcome to all new members as well. My it's hard to keep up with you all. I am so glad to see so many more people joining but of course not so glad as to why.

I hope you will find comfort and peace of mind here. I know I did.
