  1. old scars reappearing?

    Hi Doodlehead, I haven't been on here for a really long time, but happened to be browsing and noticed your post. I know exactly what you are talking about. My scars seemed to thicken and the one I had from having my appendix out when I was six (I am 59) got really red and thicker. After many months they returned to a more normal size, although they are still thicker than they were before. I have Limited and was diagnosed about 1 1/2 years ago. Cheri
  2. I'm back!

    Hi Peanut, I am so glad you are back!!! I haven't been on here for a long time, but saw that you were back and just had to say how much you were missed. I followed all your "getting well" posts that were posted by your friend, and I just want to tell you that you were greatly missed. Your sense of humor and everything that you had to share with everyone were so missed. I'm so happy you are doing better, and back again. You are such an inspiration. Lots of Hugs, Cheri

  7. 3 dental implants

    Janey, Thank you so much for the dental implant information. The dentist wanted me to get two more and I was afraid to because of all the problems I had with the first one. Cheri
  8. Truman (Linda) in the hospital

    Hi Linda, I'm so sorry you are in the hospital. Get better soon. I hope your toe is getting better too. Thanks, Ryan, for letting us know about your mom. Take care, Cheri
  9. 3 dental implants

    Hi Tangie, I, too, had a dental implant. I guess just like with everything else, everybody is different. Supposedly, I haven't had Sclero for very long - I was diagnosed in November kind of by accident and things have been progressing since then. I had mine done (one) about six months ago and had a lot of problems and still do with scar tissue. It has healed with what the dentist said is like really thick skin around where it was done. I can still have a tooth put there, since the thickening is below where the tooth would go. He kept saying everything that happened was highly unusual. I didn't tell him anything about Scleroderma because it was too new and I didn't want anyone to know. Good luck - I hope it works out for you. It could be that I'm just "unusual." :unsure: Cheri
  10. Hairloss caused by Watermelon Stomach?

    Hi Grammy, Welcome! A few years ago I was losing a lot of hair and like you, was getting really concerned. I made a dermatologist appointment and she checked my iron "storage" and it was really low. She gave me a prescription for iron and my hair quit falling out. I had to take it for a year. About a year and a half later, the same thing happened, and it was the same problem. Another prescription and my hair quit falling out. I am now going through that again and will make another appt. She said that you don't even have to be anemic for hair to start falling out. But, if your body isn't storing the iron like it should be, that will make you lose hair. I hope this has helped you - I know how scarey that can be. Take care - Cheri
  11. Good Luck Sam. I hope you find the perfect job for you and your needs. Cheri
  12. Happy Birthday Sadie!

    Happy Birthday, Sadie - I hope you had a wonderful day!
  13. Cigarettes

    Good Luck, Linda - you can do it. I used to smoke. I had a hard time the first week and kept sneaking. I finally took all my cigarettes, broke them up, put them in water and set it on the porch. Every time I wanted one I would look at how disgusting the cigarette water looked. Also, I found drinking a glass of water (a nice, fresh clean one) every time I had the urge really helped. Hugs, Cheri
  14. Very busy week...

    Hi Lisa, I just want to say a big thank you for participating in the study. It sounds like you are going through a lot. I hope during your week off you'll have some time to relax. Hugs, Cheri
  15. Hi, Mine were fatigue and joint pain. I think I just lucked out with my doctor. She said they learned in medical school never to take the ANA tests because it was rare they were ever positive. She did that after my iron was in the low but normal range and thyroid came back normal. She sent me to a rheumatologist right away. So now everything is starting. Cheri
