Hi, my symptoms are increasing although I"m trying to ignore them! I had my second hydrotherapy yesterday it was so nice to sit in warm water and do exercises, I"m hoping I will benefit, although it leaves me feeling tired. I"m now finding more dry patches on my body, more tightness in muscles especially in my legs and hands. I use loads of creams and lotions, I take nfedidine, (I hope that's the correct spelling) and I"m seeing my rheumatolagist next month, so it"s all happening. I find it difficult sometimes to manage, because I live alone now after my husband left me (he having had an affair) 4 years ago, we had been married for 36 years! when he left me to live with the woman I developed depression, still take anti depressants. These forums are good, they offer support and I get the scleroderma society magazine every 3 months, it"s good to understand the condition more.
