Scleroderma would definitely affect your life but you have to be aware that you are still living and that to some extent; you still have great control all over yourself. You may not be able to do a lot of things that you have always enjoyed such as sports, being out on the sun for too long and even doing household chores but if you learn how to manage your life greatly, it is still sure that you will enjoy so much there is that life could offer.
The first step in doing so is to humbly accept the changes that scleroderma will bring about. Have a mindset like “now that I have scleroderma, I will…” and much more. You may not be able to do a lot of things that you have enjoyed before but you still have a good life to live and if you manage it well, you will definitely enjoy it.
You must be first aware that you are suffering from something that is quite serious and has no known cure. With that, most people with sclerosis would be less social, would think about their health more and would lose loads of self-confidence. You must not think of these too much, you just have to take care of yourself more. Since you are borne with something such as sclerosis, you just have to take control in order for things to be in tune.
Remember that your illness is just a part of your life and there is a much bigger whole to that. Just have a healthy balance of activities as well as clean living and the most important part of that being control. If you are in good control, life with scleroderma will turn out much easier for you.
