Roberta: Morphea


Flowers for Roberta by Shelley Ensz I am a woman of twenty-five years of age, and two days ago I saw the doctor about a mark on my right forearm, which is compatible with the diagnosis of morphea. This lesion had already been present for more than a year, and I had considered it to be a bruise.

I decided to go to the dermatologist because my mother had noticed that it was getting larger. Now I know that it is morphea.
