Found a new Sclero friend !

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone.

Talk about a small world!! I work two days a week at our place of worship's thrift store. A friend comes in all the time, with her therapy dog, and we talk all the time. Her dog needs major surgery, so the local paper ran an article about it asking for funds to offset the costs. They then talked about my friend having a rare disease, called systemic Scleroderma !! She was in today and I asked her *Where's your Scleroderma?!?!?* She just looked at me, in surprise, when I went on to tell her about Gareth . She was diagnosis'd about 10 years ago, like Gareth. Her's is all internal (R, E, T out of CREST), Sjogren's, and MAJOR fatigue. Ohhhhhh, my! I had no idea. I knew she was *sickly* but she never put a name to her problems. She goes to J Hopkin's Scleroderma clinic. So, now I have another avenue to go down whenever I don't know what's going on with Gareth; of course, you guys are always my first place to run to!! :hug-group:

Take care, Everyone.

Hi Margaret,

 

I'm delighted that you discovered a sclero friend in your midst. Who would have guessed? And what fun, to be able to relate to what she is going through. I'm sure that was a very happy surprise for her, as well!
