On our cover this October is Abiola Segun Williams who plays TITI K, Shalewa’s mum in TINSEL. She opens up for the first time on her battle with Scleroderma, an auto- immune rheumatic disease that affects the skin and some organs of the body. Talking about her experience, she said “At the early stage,  I didn’t know what the problem was. I was my own doctor, I read everything on the Internet that seemed to relate with my symptoms. I noticed my teeth had problems, my limbs became heavy to move, my feet, hands, face were swollen. I went very dark and my skin began to harden, itch and became very scaly. I was in pain twenty-four seven’.

Read her compelling interview in Genevieve.

How did you condition yourself to deal with the many physical changes?

I basically stopped looking in the mirror. I told myself this was only a phase I was passing through. My face had changed completely. My skin looked absolutely scary. I was as skinny  as a rake but my focus was my health rather than how I looked. I was in too much pain now to care about my looks.

    I too am a Nigerian with Scleroderma, and I want to thank Genevieve magazine for publishing this article about a rare condition that so many are battling with.
