At the age of 3, I developed localized scleroderma morphea, I was never really sure of what I had, or even was concerned until a couple years ago when people started laughing and pointing at me like I was abnormal. Years passed and I started doing more research, wondering if it could one day become internal, and how common this was because no one I ever met looked like me. I have it on my hip, and all over my back. I also have vitiligo. Now getting older I'm having more grown up questions like, will I ever be able to give birth and have a child of my own, and even if I can do that, will they also have to live the life of having this immune disease? I would never want to put my child through what I have. I have had several laser treatments because of my low self esteem, and the outcome was just alot of pain and nothing ever helped. I was really looking into getting a tattoo on my skin to draw attention away but, all the research I did never showed any good news. Have you heard any successful stories about tattoos and localized scleroderma? Right now I'm really concerned about being about to carry my own child. Every woman deserves it. I can't imagine not being able to because of my disease. Do you know anything to help?
