Raynaud's phenomenon

Only special people have magic color changing finger tips!!  

For real though... I've had Raynaud's Phenomenon (sometimes called Raynaud's Symptoms, Raynaud's Disease) since I was about 21, I think. That's the first time I can remember. It started when I was at BYU in Provo. I would go out running in the winter and come back with a few fingertips white and painful. I dismissed it.  10 years later... still dismissing it, ha!  I'm not too worried about it. Just a circulation issue, I guess. I haven't read a whole lot about it, just enough to know I'm not going to die. My mom has it too. I've met a couple other ladies with it.  Just an annoying, odd thing to deal with!
