Chela: Esclerodermia Difusa

Lo que me ha traumado es la parte estética.

Mountain Range with Cloud Effects by Ione Bridgman, ISN ArtistDesde 2002 me diagnosticaron esclerodermia difusa. Fue terrible para mí; las facciones de mi cara cambiaron mucho, pero sin ser notorio para las personas que no me conocen. Las amigas me dicen que me hice la cirugía plástica.

Pero lo terrible son las ronchas que me han salido en el pecho, algunas tan incómodas que me las han operado.

Los dolores en las articulaciones son fuertes, pero manejables. Tomo medicamentos, pero lo que me ha traumado es la parte estética.
