Hi Craig,


Thanks for pointing this fact out to us.


In Australia via Scleroderma Australia we had a survey conducted by Karen Kearney who chose the subject [Psychosocial Stressors, Emotional Regulation and the Experience of Scleroderma for her PhD Research Project. Many of our members responded to her survey. The preliminary results are showing that this is indeed the case. The body has a mind of it's own.

Same here in the UK, Robyn!


The Scleroderma Society also sent this survey out which I expect a lot of members responded to, including myself. :)
