My mum died two years ago, we lost her to scleroderma. She used to be so jolly and plump and full of life, everyone loved her. But when scleroderma took over she lost so much weight, her skin hardened. She could barely open her mouth. And her personality changed. She was angry and upset most of the time, because of the pain she was in. If there was any way that i could have taken her place, I would have. She deserved her life much more than I do mine.
