Skintight – a Column by Dinah Chong Watkins

Dinah is a columnist sending you the good word from sunny California. Diagnosed with scleroderma in 1996, she grapples (literally) with the condition. She likes piña coladas, long walks on the beach, and is counting on her husband’s 401K to provide all that. In the meantime, she hopes you’ll get a chuckle or two out of her writing because laughter is priceless, or at least, that’s what her previous editor said when she asked for a raise.
