    Prognoses with CREST?

    Sheryl, I totally agree with you. I've had Systemic Sclerosis since 1999, (lung, & skin involvement). And back in February of this year, I was hospitalized for 3 weeks - had congestive heart failure, doctors believe it was a nasty virus when I returned from Atlanta, GA., seeing other girlfriends who have scleroderma whom we formed a close relationship. My doctors believe it was totally unrelated to scleroderma. After that frightening incident, my family, husband & 16 yr. old daughter are very protective of my health. In time, they have cut me some slack, but do not want me to fly for awhile. I'll wait until next spring to fly! :) Life can be inevitable. I truly believe scleroderma won't kill me, it'll be something else such as walking at the end of my drive way to get the newspaper and mail and get struck by a vehicle, etc...... Anne

    Getting To Know You - Archives

    Hi my name is Annie. First and foremost, I need to Thank Shelley with her assistance of allowing me to enter my 1st post. I was diagnosed with systemic scleroderma, Aug. 1997. I have lung involvement, heartburn, tightening of skin on face, hands and feet. Skin has softened up somewhat and not as tight in the areas I've mentioned and raynauds. The SD has not progressed such as affecting internal organs. (hope it doesn't). I live in Green Bay, WI., and wow! today is nasty cold with a wind chill of -15. I am 46, married in May 1985, daughter who is 14 1/2 years. old and a six yr. female Yellow Lab, named, "Sunny". I look forward becoming acquainted with the people in this forum. Thank you, :) Annie
