Day 1014

2 years, 9 Months and 10 days in!

Hey y’all! It’s that time again, where I begin to feel guilty about not updating.. Things have been hectic! I finished exams (AND PASSED) and am now set to graduate which is exciting as hell!

Skin has been up and down and all over the place. Still going through flares and such. No where on my body is completely clear really but it’s ok. At least it’s not bleeding and weeping through my clothes. I only took a few photos this time though. Not too much to update from last time, so short post this time round!

My arms are probably doing the worst atm. Summer is here and heat makes me flare terribly.

Legs are doing ok tho! Just dry and flaky. Those white marks are what happens when I scratch.

Those massive open wounds are now a distant memory. I had those for over a year and I cannot believe how far I have come. It’s still patchy and dry and those spots are from flaring. But I can def manage.

My poor face! I’m trying to stay cheerful!

But on a good day I can put makeup on and I’m all good! Some days when my skin is terrible and I do makeup you can kinda see how flaky my skin is.

My hair is finally growing back and looking the way it used to before this mess. SO LUSH!

So still a positive update!!! Not at the end yet but certainly through the hardest times. I hope you guys are all well and looking forward to the holiday period! We all need some cheer because 2016 was such a shitty year right?

Take care everyone! Stay safe! X

Day 360

11 Months and 26 days in!

HOLY what cannot believe I have made it this far. Almost one year! I have been so out of it that I really have not been good at documenting my progress. I had another flare around Christmas but nothing as bad as the initial flare. A few spots of ooze cropped up. On my chin in particular. This flare is still full body though. It’s that dry, crazy shedding type flare with lots of tiny dotted scabs. I think I am coming out of it though. The progress is slow but at least it’s endurable.

However the flare is bad enough that I am housebound again. The cabin fever is real, guys. I don’t know what I would do without tv shows/games/books to distract me. I’ve been living this kind of half life for so long. I don’t even remember what it’s like to have a full nights sleep. Hopefully this year is gonna bring me some better times!

My arms were looking hella worse a few weeks ago but they are calming down a bit. They are ridiculously itchy though.

My left and right inner leg. My god they have come a long way!! I remember when they were so bad and oozing I would rock back and forth in pain. Makes me really glad I took photos at my worst.

My outer right leg. It feels worse than it looks. Just lots of shedding and bumpy. But again I can’t really complain.

This is my ankle. You can really see what I mean by the weird dry flaky dots. Oh and my hairy legs hahaha.

These things are back! They only last a couple of days before they flake off and disappear.

My face is doing ehhh ok. My eyelids have this split in them and one morning they started bleeding. I’m talking droplets of blood. I freaked the hell out of my mum. I was just like “What? Did you accidentally delete candy crush again or something?” I laughed. She didn’t.

No more eyebrow oozing which is amazing. The patch is gone! There is only that bit on my chin. My face just sheds and sheds like the rest of my body. My scalp too. That annoys me to no end. Also no more balding! Glad that bald patch grew back. Phew.
