    Job Review

    Hi Truman~ It brings tears to my eye to hear about all the pain your going through. I am so sorry for the lack of consideration on your employers part. Definately look into FMLA. Some employers actually pay for the time you take off due to your illness. My employer does. I work for at&t. I have had an ulcer on the tip of my middle finger for almost a year and with the information that I've learned here I am going to insist that my dr prescribes me something to heal it. They are so incredibly painful. I really feel your pain Tru. May you get some sleep and relief from you pain very soon!

    Hello~ Has anyone out there have problems with numbness? Just yesterday I noticed that the outside portion of my thumb has gone numb. It's so weird. It's just one little part of my thumb that has been affected. Oh and also what should I be asking my rheumatologist at my next appt. I see all kinds of things you guys talk about, but haven't got a clue about. Like....CRP and other things you guys abbreviate. Should I be having her run tests and new blood work? I haven't had any blood work done for 9-12 months. Right now she has told me that I have Raynaud's, Arthritis and Lupus. For some reason, I don't believe that to be true. I just don't seem to get direct answers from her. I want to go in there next time with all my duck's in a row, if you know what I am talking about.... :unsure: HELP!

    Our Pets...

    In my zoo I have 2 adorable boy's 11 & 12. I have a wonderful hubby of almost 13years. And then there's my fur baby's. We have 1 cat named Sebastian (10 )he's gray stripped with a little bit of brownish color. He adopted us when he fell in our yard and broke his leg. We also have 3 wonderful dogs. Kia (10) who is a med sized "Heinz 57 mix "with short hair..her coloring looks like a beagle we adopted her when a friend could no longer take care of her . Her favorite part of the day is eating and cookie time. Then we have Kaden (2) who is just he cutest boy you've ever seen. He is a Siberian Husky black and white fur with blue eyes. And last but not least our newest member is a rescued Pitbull/boxer mix. He is the BIGGEST LOVER boy around. He also has a problem with velcro, he is stuck to me like nothing else....he loves to give kisses and loves to get belly rubs. Pets are so special. I hope everyone has the chance and privilege of having a special friend. ;)

    Glad your feeling better Jackie! Try not to do too much and just remember to relax and enjoy some quiet time.
  10. I just need to vent a little bit. Today my hands are so swollen and super tight. I work on a pc all day and am having a really hard time. Does anyone have any suggestions for relief? I thought about taking a water pill but that probably isn't a good idea. Any idea's would be great. Thank you! :unsure:

    Kidney Involvement

    Hi Patty~ I agree with Lizzy, you she see a Dr. I know that's the last thing you probably want to do is head back there, but you really do need more safe than sorry. Let us know what they say.. Hope you feel better soon!

    Hi Celia~ Interesting............I'll have to definately mention it to my rheumatologist at my next appt. As it goes right now, my thumb is still numb and it's been almost a week. It really is strange.

    My New Job...

    YAY Jen! I excited for you. There's nothing better then helping out with animals rescues . The dogs are so appriciative. It's like they really know how lucky they are. I was a foster mommy for 2 pitbulls in San Diego and have since adopted the last one I fostered. He is sooo loyal and loving. Your going to love your new job! Hope your man caves in. ;)

    Update On My Sis!

    I can't believe that her SO treated her that way. Shame on HIM! Glad to hear that she's in a much better place (above the sod) and getting the care she deserves. Hope you have a great time this weekend with your visit. :D

    Hi Jen~ How are things going for you now? I can't wait to see your pictures. I am so glad that they have a treatment for you.
  25. THIS is a GREAT topic, thanks Emmi. I have learned to be more patient and enjoy my family and friends even more. I try not to take anyone or anything for granted and really try to look at the bright side of things verses the negative side. I really try to view this as "We all have something" may it be diabetes or any other disease and try not to feel sorry for myself. I just try to stay on top of the changes that are going on with me and read up on Scleroderma as much as I can. I have a strong faith that keeps me going. We do have so many things to be grateful for. :D
