Hello Diana,

 

Welcome to Sclero Forums! We're delighted to have you join us, although sorry that it's because of scleroderma.

 

We'd love to hear more about you, too. Speaking of which, a terrific thread for old or new members to post an introductory message in is at:

 

Getting to Know You

 

and it is also a good place to read about other forum members, to help find those that you may especially relate to.


Warm Hugs,

The most important thing in the world to know about scleroderma is sclero.org.

Hi Diana,

 

Welcome to the forums! I am glad you found us and have decided to join in. I think many of us feel as you do and it is such a relief to be able to come here and talk about our disease with others who really do know what we are going through! There is a great thread (Getting to Know You) that you may want to read and post on where we have all talked a little bit about ourselves. It would be a great way to introduce yourself to the group.

 

Again, welcome!

 

Warm wishes,

Heidi

Diana,

Welcome! I'm so glad that you have found us. This is a great place to share experiences, information, tips and all that REAL stuff that those who haven't experienced it really can share. In addition to the experience of our members, we also have thousands of links to studies on scleroderma and it's various symptoms, treatments, current clinical trials, etc. So please be sure to visit our medical pages.

 

Please let us know more about you and some of your experiences. We hope you post often.

 

Big Hugs,

Hi Diana,

Welcome to the forums! It is so scary to make your first post and not know if anyone will respond. You will quickly see how everyone here supports one another and we can relate to what you are going through.

Please keep psoting new topics or jump right into a thread already going!

 

Hugs,

Lisa

Hi Diana,

 

It is nice to find your way to a place where others understand, isn't it? I don't think there is a better place for information, support, encouragement and even a laugh from time to time! I hope you find it as helpful as I have.
