My skin on my face is beginning to thicken and tighten due Scleroderma. My big
fear is that I'm going to lose my ability to smile. I have see enough Scleroderma
pictures to know that this is a possibility. I can cope with pain but the thought
of losing my smile saddens me. Up until this point my scleroderma has mainly
affected my arm. I have 3 inch "dent"...linear morphea with some atrophy and a
small "dent" on the side of my nose. Every morning I do stretching execises of my
face. One thing that is good...my wrinkles are filling in and my lips are getting
thinner...save money on lip stick lol.
I don't even know why I'm posting this but just typing it out makes me feel better.
Even if I lose my smile, I will be the woman with smiling eyes that are shining:)
