Yay Dona 10/25/05 04:57 AM a day off for you. Lay around on your heating pad and eat bon bons all day! Well.. girlfriend.. so much for me resting up.. Micaela got the flu and was sicker than a dog all day yesterday.. all night last night.. at least I am finally getting my voice back!! Ya know the thing with the Raynaulds.. that was one of the reasons they kept pushing for a lupus diagnosis.. however Raynaulds if really commen with Fibro too.. ya know my rhumie was explaining that fibro is linked with sensory nerve damage... I wonder if we just "feel" the cold faster than others and so our body responds that way?? I know raynaulds is really supposed to be a circulation issue.. I'm already having trouble this year. It's going to be a long hard winter.. My hands will turn red, swell, itch like crazy then turn white.. I've done it for about 4 years already but it wasn't diagnosed till about 2 years ago.. I have trouble with my feet too but not as bad.. my hands get embarrasing.. they look like Mitts!! Now about the Rosacea.. I have since I originally got Mono gotten what looked like a butterfly rash.. and the lesions behind my ears and on the back of my head.. I saw a dermie about a year ago and he said it was Rosacea.. and the lesions were psoriasis.. So I excepted that and went on my merry way...but my new GP says he thinks it's a miss-diagnosis as he says he has never seen psoriasis cause lesions that look like this.. my rhumie agreed.. so thus the biopsy to find out what it really is.. I'm just sure it will be clear that particular week and I'll get to wait.. Tona.. did they give you anything to clear up the Rosacea? The last dermie had put me on Tetrocycline for 90 days and gave me a bunch of creams and gels etc.. seems like it did help for a while.. The rain actually sounds good Tona.. this would be a good week for it here.. I don't have any weddings this weekend.. YEAH!!! Hope your foot is doing better and your having a good day.. I got to get busy.. I have a dozen messages to return from being off yesterday.. Loves ya!!
