2 Months and 23 days in!
Boy does this journey get harder and harder! This past week I have gone back to not being able to tolerate the epsom baths. My entire body was just stinging and burning like crazy so I am back to working myself up to have showers. In the beginning I found that if I was having a bad day I could forgo a shower or two. But now that the oozing has escalated I can’t really go a day without. Especially as my scalp is now particularly bad and when I wake up it’s just matted and gross.
As I approach month 3, I definitely find the itching sensation getting worse and it feels like it’s deep within the layers of my skin. It’s so hard to describe it’s not a normal itchy feeling. Sometimes my body will randomly convulse due to the itch, like I am having some kind of fit! The shedding is still insane, I only have to run a finger across my forehead and I can make it snow. :O
My legs are having a hard time atm. Very raw and sore!
My neck is the only place on my body experiencing edema. Strange. It is still oozing but not as much as it used to. Just in the crease really. Maybe it doesn’t feel as bad before because now the pain on my face eclipses everything else.
My face is giving me the most grief! Very sore and oozy. It’s pretty bad behind my ear too!! 😦 I also wear glasses so sometimes that can be difficult.. Hahah can’t catch a break!!! My nose is the only place not affected!! Along with my fingers and toes. Everywhere else is game on..
Also my hair has been falling out at an alarming rate. Balding patches!!!
Scary huh? I really don’t know how I have the courage to take pictures sometimes.
I am still not using any products on my body. Moisturisers are a distant memory now. I don’t even notice not using it now. I seem much happier without it really. It’s working for me. Sleep is still crap but it seems like I make up for it with my appetite. That hasn’t changed haha!
OH, also shout out to the new forum over at No More Steroids!!! So excited for more TSW awareness!!! Big thanks to all the effort the guys over there have put in! Woohoo!
