Was very interested to read this as this lady lives very near me. Unfortunately there is no contact details in the article, so will have to try and track her down!

Hi Bev,

 

Back in the summer St Luke's hospital conducted a seminar for fellow suffers. They are in the process of setting up a contact group for similar people. I am a fellow sufferer and would also be interested a local group. You could leave me your contact details through this site.

 

Best regards,

 

Peter

Would be very interested in joining a group as I have systemic scleroderma and don't know anyone with my condition.

 

I live at Horsforth which is not far from Shipley.

Hi Smiler

 

Welcome to the forum!

 

The Scleroderma Society has 17 local groups so if you click on the links in mine and Amanda's posts it will take you to the list of local contacts where hopefully you will be able to contact other people around or near your area.

 

I host a local group for West Sussex and can verify that it's a very good way to meet other Scleroderma sufferers. :)

Hello Smiler

 

Welcome to the forums! As mentioned by Jo the Scleroderma Society has various local groups that meet across the country.

 

Have you been diagnosed long? I'm into year 4 and it's been a bumpy ride that's for sure but never boring.

 

Take care and keep posting
