10 Years

14 posts in this topic

Ten years ago I was in a coma after coding blue twice. I had just been diagnosed with scleroderma and was in the hospital for a CT scan when I stopped breathing, my heart stopped and my kidneys failed.

 

What a long, strange trip it's been...

 

Thank you all for being here for me.

Hi mio,

 

Yes an interesting journey!! and maybe more interesting events to come who knows.  

 

Strange how this 'thing' affects us all so differently.   Here am I having sauntered through for something between 48 and 58 years, most of that time not knowing what on earth ails me.   And there you are all of of sudden wham! bam! in a crisis.

 

No wonder the medicos we come across are often baffled by our peculiar symptoms.

 

Wishing you a more even path along the rest of the way.

 

Best wishes

Judyt

Miocean, it's our pleasure. You can do two things with scleroderma, complain about your lot in life, or get on and live! You got on and lived!

 

I am sure that you'll be here celebrating with all of us for years to come, at least I hope so.

 

Take care.

Hi Shelley, you may not remember me! It's been years! My story was published in Voices of Scleroderma Volume 2. I just wanted you to know I'm still alive and doing well.

 

Everything has changed on here. I liked to have never found the site!

 

Hope all is well!

Hi Lisa,

 

Of course I remember you!  I am delighted that you have found us once again. Everybody with our Voices of Scleroderma book series, grab Volume 2 and Lisa's story is on page 94.

 

Is your mom still okay, and able to help you? How are things going for you?

Hello Lisa

 

How lovely that you've come back! As I haven't actually met you yet "Hello and how are you?"

 

I was just saying the other day how the forums change, people come and people go, some return and some never leave :lol:  :lol: !

 

Take care.
