“Sometimes I worry that my disease will taint their childhoods. Then I think of what my scleroderma can teach them.” Playing games on the floor, bicycle riding, swimming, boating, hiking, running, rock climbing, surfing, skiing, scuba diving, and horseback riding; all activities my kids have asked me to do with them. Oh, how I wish that I could do all these things with my son and daughter. The reality is my autoimmune disease prevents me from enjoying these forms of recreation.
