I am a twenty-one-year-old female. I was diagnosed with morphea when I was a junior in high school.
Thank God for dermatology. However my doctor did not explain the disease very well to me. I have multiple grayish/brown/ and white spots on my sides, stomach, and back. The one on my left side is huge!
I was given steroid injections so it would not show through my beautiful prom dress but it was no use. I only received a few injections and after high school I almost forgot about my morphea.
I was in one of my Occupational Therapy classes today when a classmate presented a fact sheet on scleroderma. I was shocked! I had never heard anything about it!
I was recently beginning to want to do something about the many spots because they are so ugly. I do realize I am very lucky and hope I can handle these. I am just wondering if I will get more if it's over? Thanks for listening!
