  Hi Sherrine, turn
 First off, I want to thank you and everyone for your support. It means alot to me.
 I have been following all the posts and there has been alot of very good discussion.
 It is wonderful that you along with the other moderators, and members told your
 personal stories. They were so moving and ispirational.
 Sherrine, I can't thank you enough for helping. I am very grateful for all the hard work
 that you and all the moderators do.
 I am getting some much needed rest. I am seeing my rheumy on Tuesday. My right
 arm has been giving me problems because of the atrophy due to my Scleroderma.
 My arm is noticeably wasting and I am having muscle weakness in my forearm.
  Typing is sometimes difficult and often type with one hand.
 I will contnue reading posts and hope to be posting before the end of the week. yeah
  Thank You for Caring

Robin, I'm glad you are taking care of yourself.  I had an aunt that had Scleroderma and it sure isn't any fun.  You are an inspiration to all of us here, not to mention an amazing woman.  You will be in my prayers and I hope you get things back under control quickly.
You have made my week!  I was so afraid we were losing you here on the forum.  Your posts are wonderful, inspiring, and they give many some good things to think about, including me.  So, I'm thrilled that you will be back as soon as you are feeling better.  That's the whole reason I wanted to talk to you. 
Get your rest and we will be here waiting for you.  Have a good evening.
