  1. Welcome Janet Paulmenn: ISN Artist

    I can't wait to see some of the new artwork on our forum.
  2. Many of you here on the Sclero Forums know Lisa Volz also know as Peanut to many of us. She passed away after a very long recovery period from stem cell surgery and many complications before and after this surgery. Our sincere condolences go out to her family.
  3. What a great story Miocean. Addiction is a very tug of war illness. Once you win the battle you realize all the benefits. It is easy not to work at giving up something you think you are really enjoying. Saving the money in a jar or box can be one of the biggest motivations. You get to start listing all the things you may want to do with it or reward yourself weekly then monthly then something special the next year. Motivation is a hard thing to talk yourself into, be it exercise or quitting the habit. Most of us have family members that struggle with some type of addiction. It truly is hard to watch them slowly destroying their bodies.
  4. A less than stellar year so far!

    Jeannie, I'm shocked at all your news. So very glad to hear that you are coming around once again. It is so much fun meeting some of our special Sclero friends isn't it. Keep that weight off. Don't go eating any greasy foods for awhile either. Keep your meals simple so your tummy can handle things once again. Fill up on healthy things and take advantage of the gift of living through all of this. Welcome Back.
  5. Every contribution of any kind helps. Whoo Hoo! Thanks.
  6. Surgery #1 out of the way (Cervical Stenosis)

    Good luck with your therapy JBG. I hope you can get back to routine activities quickly now. I didn't realize the recovery was so long. We are use to plugging along but enough is enough. Jeannie, I am happy to hear that your surgery went well and you were treated like Royalty. It makes it easier to cope and deal with the pain when the staff are on top of things and really helpful. May you recover quickly. Both of you recover quickly and without excess pain. Soft hugs.
  7. What's Your Favorite Holiday?

    December Holiday in Florida is high on my list of favorite Holiday's or places to be on a Holiday. I do believe our 4th of July celebrations at our home make that my favorite of Holiday's. Warm weather, sun, family and water sports. What more can a person ask for? Huh! Oh alright, then food makes the day complete. Also it happens to be my Mother's Birthday. So we really celebrate Independence Day.
  8. my poem

    I like your poem Lynn. Many true statements in there. Nice job.
  9. Do I have scleroderma?

    Jo69, welcome to the ISN forums. Your symptoms could be the start of Scleroderma though it can take many years for a diagnosis. I had issues similar to yours when my disease started. I was diagnosed when having and Endoscopy and Colonoscopy from my Gastroenterologist, as I was having issues with an ulcer and gastritis and started developing bowel issues. Everyone's symptoms are so different that most doctors don't jump into giving people a diagnosis until many issues develop. Many of us never show inflammatory markers with this disease unless we happen to be in a severe flare of some sort. Read some of the medical pages looking up some of the symptoms you have and learn so that you have proper ideas or thoughts to talk with your doctor about. I went on my own to a Rheumatologist and paid out of pocket for my diagnosis. Once I had my diagnosis I went back to my family doctor with the reports. Then my insurance paid for all appointments after that.
  10. IVIg Infusions

    Margaret, please do keep us informed on how Gareth feels while doing the abdominal infusions. I am happy to hear that there are newer methods to help those in need. We all wish the best for your son.
  11. Lynnie, keep us informed and updated on what you decide. I went for the hysterectomy. So happy to not have prolonged menstrual cycles anymore. Whoo Hoo! Happy dance.
  12. Pain in wrist and hands

    Welcome to ISN forums Russty. Pain in your hands could be anything from Carpal Tunnel to Arthritis symptoms. Please do give us more information.
  13. Surgery Done

    Susie, I hope you are feeling much better now that your surgery is done. New methods of surgery amaze me. Mine was removed 30 years ago and I spent a week in the hospital recovering. Things are improving in the medical field making life and recovery much easier.
  14. Acupuncture

    Kamlesh, keep us posted on what you try and how it works for you. Keep up your walking as long and as often as you can. Especially if you aren't having pain while enjoying the scenery around you.
  15. Neurostimulator

    Kamlesh, I am so sorry to hear that you are having more issues to deal with. I was hoping all the walking and sight seeing would help you to feel so much better. Keep us informed on what you decide to do.
