Barb: Diffuse Systemic Scleroderma

Is there anyone out there going through the same thing?

Pink Bow I was diagnosed in 1985 with systemic scleroderma and Raynaud's disease.

It has affected the esophagus, fingers, toes and bowels, and recently I started having mini strokes.

I have recently gone on disability insurance. I am in the process of being tested for these strokes I am having, and I have to admit I am really scared. Is there anyone out there going through the same thing?

I could really use an understanding email buddy right now, so please feel free to write to me.
