Member Story: A Place to Call My Own!

I was diagnosed about 4 years ago with Raynaud’s Disease.  I had gone through many many tests to make sure I didn’t have Lupus like my aunt does, or any other autoimmune disease.  I do live in a cold climate, and although it’s not too cold for most, I think I am in the deep freeze 365 days a year! 

Even in the summer when it’s 70 to 80 degrees, I am wearing jeans, a t-shirt, socks and shoes and even my hoodie.  I cannot even carry a gallon of milk to the checkstand without my fingers turning white.  I stumbled across this website because I have a research paper I am doing on Raynaud’s for my anatomy class.  I am looking into new cures or treatments for Raynaud’s and seemed to of found a place to call my own!
