    Getting To Know You - Archives

    Hi Michelle, I am a newbie to Sclero.org too, but I am already finding lots of information and help. I read in your introduction that you are probably going to be moving to NC. You will love it here. Winters are not too bad, but not like Ca. I can understand your frustration over doctors and diagnoses it took me 3 years to find a doctor in NC and I am still not too sure he is the right one. He does take his time with me and listens, so that is a plus. I, like so many other scleroderma patients read and soak all the information I can get my hands on. Keep on pushing until you are satisfied with your doctor, read and read some more, and never give up. Regards, NC Dreama
  2. Hello all, I am new to this site and would really like some feedback from other members. I have had scleroderma for this last 7 years and get along fairly well. My problem seems to be recurring staph infections, mainly in my feet. Is this common? I have taken so many antibiotics that I feel like a walking pill, I have also done intravenous antibiotics as well, the last round being 2 years ago. Two weeks ago a staph infection appeared out of nowhere near the same site as I had 2 years ago. Does anyone else have these type of infections? What questions should I be asking my doctors? Would an infectious disease doctor be a new doctor to add to the list? I am nearly at wits end with these repeated staph infections and doctors just popping me full of antibiotics. Can anyone give me a clue? Is this just another symptom of scleroderma? Regards and many thanks, NC Dreama :)
