Seasonal change: Summer to Autumn, Raynaud's Awareness Month, October, Scleroderma, Rare Disease, Invisible Disabilities Week 15-21 October

 Seasonal change – Summer to Autumn 
‘The 1st September is recognised as the change in season, as by, the meterological calendar. Here in the northern hemisphere the season has now changed to autumn, with spring having arrived in the southern hemisphere.

Even though the warmer summer months bring along a marginal easing in some of my scleroderma and Raynaud’s symptoms, combined with additional ‘summer symptom’ emergence, my heart still stinks somewhat at the thought of returning to the ‘eskimo months’.

I use this term, as I spend the colder seasons wearing clothes similar to an eskimo. Wearing so many clothes- I have more layers than an onion, with my inner Bond Girl, vanished into oblivion!’
