  1. Thank you all sooooo much, I definitely need to find ways to manage my stress. I have such a powerful mind....I feel like I'm capable of manifesting symptoms. I am trying to rely on my faith. I appreciate the words of advice and sometimes it feels like tough love, but it's so true! Thank you all again and I'll be sending good thoughts to everyone!
  2. Thank you so much for the advice and I agree. I'm doing better today in terms of anxiety, but unfortunately it comes in waves! I am going to do my very best to stay positive and focus on my emotional health as well as physical. I think maybe decompressing by getting a massage or facial! I am going to focus on good in, good out. Eating healthy, staying active, breathing! I've started the process of getting medical records to Dr. Fischer here in Colorado (on the list) so hopefully I will consult with him soon! Thank you again and bless you and your journey!
  3. Hi all! I'm new here. I developed some very scary neurological symptoms following a flu shot in December. My neurologist and immunologist ordered numerous tests to confirm or deny chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) which is a chronic form of Guillain Barre. I had a blood test done that was positive for the connective tissue panel and further work up was needed. Yesterday I received my results from the lab - Positive Scl-70 negative ANA. My understanding is this points to systemic sclerosis; like many of you I'm sure I felt like I had been kicked in the gut and the face. To be honest - I'm terrified! I've been sick all night over it, I can't sleep and can't even muster up the strength to stay hydrated. I have two beautiful children 13 and 8 and I can't speak too much on that because I'll be a bumbling mess, but I guess the next step is rheumatologist. The wait is months and that scares me. How do I get the strength to put this in it's place and not be so sick with worry!? Thank you!
