I am glad that I found this site.

Little Fishies by Shelley EnszI have a lot of diagnoses, as you can see. I do have a question regarding CREST, if I may. And please, anyone who would like to chat, or has a response, also feel free to e-mail me.

When we are given the CREST diagnosis, does that mean that we definitely will have the tight skin eventually? I do not mean to sound ignorant, but I get so taken aback at times by all of the things that I have to deal with.

I am glad that I found this site, and I hope to offer support and some stories that will have common ground with everyone here. I appreciate all of your time, and thank you in advance. I wish everyone here nothing but good days, and positive outcomes.
