I don't know exactly what my type of scleroderma is, but I do know that I have been in a wheelchair for eleven months, and I don't see any progress. So I would like to know if, and when, I will be able to walk again.
Is there a way to find out if there is any hope for me? Living in these conditions is not easy, especially if you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel!
