More emphasis should be put on finding a cure for this disease.

Mary's Fruit Bowl by Shelley Ensz I have been diagnosed with scleroderma which condition I have been treating with various medications and numerous physicians.

I have come to feel that I am am easy pickings for the majority of physicians since they know that there is no cure. Other than the experimental drugs, it is been more or less a quick fix in order to relieve the pain and give some relief.

The entire doctors scene has been very discouraging for me over the years. More emphasis should be put on finding a cure for this disease in a manner such as the Jerry Lewis Telethon.
