  5. I have low blood pressure especially when I first get up; sometimes it makes me dizzy. I don't think it is my medications as I am not on enough or the type that would cause this except maybe my antidepressant or pain meds but this is new; most of the time my blood pressure has been really good.
  6. I am looking for a scleroderma expert in my area but as of yet I am seeing a rheumatologist until I can find one. As I read things on this site it made me question whether he knew what he was talking about. I will look on this form to see if one is close by; it is getting hard for me to drive long distances, which seems funny to me as I was a long distance truck driver before all of this started up. Thank you
  7. I love making quilts and sewing of any kind when I have the energy to do it; I make a lot of doll clothes to donate to our giving tree at holiday time. I always liked working and improving the house but that has come to a stop with mobility issues. When I take a few pieces of material and make it into something great it makes me feel so good; everybody in the family wants one. I will post pics of some of my projects later.
  8. I use coffee cans for that stuff and the dogs get part of it as it is hard to cook for one person. The little stuff goes in the dishwasher with the dishes; my dishwasher has a garbage disposal in it so I don't have to pre wash the dishes, just scrape off the big chunks. I know the dogs love the scraps but it causes them to gain a lot of weight; my vet put Tony, my poodle, on a no table scraps diet but he cheats once in a while Mariah, my husky, has a touchy tummy so I have to be careful what I give her, so I have a coffee can by the sink with a small plastic bag in it so I can throw stuff out with the trash once a week.
