Hi, I am new to this site and to chat rooms. I have Systemic Scleroderma and have had it since 2004- went away on honeymoon fit and healthy and returned to England with a virus which triggered this disease. However, I now have two great kids, even though the doctors advised me against getting pregnant. Life is good! However, I do have crooked hands, Raynaud's, digital ulcers, esophagus trouble, very tight skin and a comical lack of stretch. I would be very interested in meeting others in North West with this condition and would be happy to be a coordinator for Liverpool.
