I went to see my consultant last week for a review - I have CREST. Currently I just suffer with bad Raynauds and things don't seem to be progressing which is good news. However I find I get quite down on my review days and the days on which I go for my heart scan and lung function test. The Raynauds is a problem every day but you learn to work around it. I think going to the consultant and answering all the questions they ask you makes you realise about all the other things that could develop. I don't think you can live your life worrying about "what ifs" but I think the days when you talk about the condition in detail are when you really think about what you have and what could happen in the future. I just wondered what other people think. That said you have to live in the now and enjoy life and that is exactly what I am doing!!
