Hi Terry,

Welcome. You do read as an upbeat guy...it helps when things get tough, eh? Your family sounds loving.

Lot of great people here, men, women of all ages who give support and also need support.

The dry one is Sjogren's Synodrome. I have the dried raisins for eyes thingy too. SLE also...

Again welcome and I'll read you around the forum again.

Hi Terry :lol:
Welcome to our family. I just wanted to let you know that we have a men's forum here (if you have not already discovered it) if you'd like to meet other men with Lupus!
Being an upbeat person is rather important when dealing with Lupus and all of it's cousins (like Raynaud's and Sjorgen's). You will find that everyone here is very helpful, understanding, informative and comforting. We want you to know that you are not alone....

Peace and Blessings

Hi Terry Colorado,

A Doppleganger?

Do you have Window Paint? Usually under Programs/Accessories...

If so, First make a copy of the snap..
Then open up your copy of the snap with it. Once opened with Paint.
Under Stretch...
In the horizontal window change 100% to 50%
In the vertical window change 100% to 50%

You can increase the same way...100% to 125% and etc...

This method will not distort your image. If it isn't small enough. Reopen and decide how much more you need it to shrink by in percentage.. Eventually you will get the hang of how much to decrease in one attempt...

Hope this helps...
