I have scleroderma diagnosed 6 years ago. I think that we all have those bad days that it is very hard to cope with the situation. Others just don't seem to understand. Foe instance their idea of being tired isn't the same fatigue that we feel. I found it very helpful to join a support group. There we share our experiences and can offer suggestions on things that have helped us. I guess this forum does the same thing. I always try to keep a positive attitude and not dwell on being ill. Good luck to you.
