Very sorry to hear about this. I enjoy Celine's music very much.

Re: Celine Dion has SPS, a rare disease

I will pray for her.  It has to be awful to get this horrid diagnosis and not have her husband with her for support.  Muscle rigidity can be very painful.  I did hear a clip she made discussing the disease and to me, I think it has affected her ability to speak already.  So very sad.

Re: Celine Dion has SPS, a rare disease

Oh, @SilleeMee , I knew you had health challenges, but not to this degree!  I am sad to hear this.  Reading your posts, one would never know or think they are slowing you down.  

 

My goodness, fostering goldens, for one, must be difficult at times.  And using your micro roller, hair dryer, all your beauty tools....just gripping them.  

 

You are a shining example of perseverance.  

 

It certainly hasn't affected your wealth of knowledge and the kindness you show in sharing it with all of us.

 

Thank you~

Thank you @tends2dogs 

Normal things in daily life can be challenging but not impossible for now anyway.

It sounds like a horrible disease.

@goldensrbest 

Autoimmune disease lupus. That is closely related to scleroderma in terms of how it damages the body. In fact, people with scleroderma have been known to develop lupus later on in life.
