At my parent’s insistence, I have decided to move back home. While I didn’t want to so soon, it is nice being home. I decided to take a shower this morning and skip moisturizing, because there are research and anecdotes saying you heal faster that way. While that may be the case, it was too uncomfortable for me. So far cream I got from the doctor and the cream the Boy gave me doesn’t sting to bad. Thank God. I’m looking into getting coconut oil and shea butter, but the cost adds up and my skin is so fickle. I never know when it decided it will no longer tolerate something.
After I announced that I will be taking a year off on Facebook, the support has been overwhelming. I guess it’s true hard times will show you who your good friend are. As I continue on with this journey, I have a feeling that I will become indebted to a lot of my friends. I love them long time!
Even though it hasn’t even been a month yet, skin, and consequently life, sucks so much sometimes. I have resorted to avoiding most reflective surfaces. I know I can, but sometimes I don’t know how I will live like this for another year or two. /self pity
Everywhere I go I leave behind a trail of skin flakes. It’s amazing how much skin I shed. I think I read you shed 9 million skin cells in a day… I think I shed that much in few hours! I am losing weight as well. I’m not sure if it’s just muscle, or it’s because my adrenal glands are messed up. only time will tell! Meanwhile as soon as I am able to, I’ll start squatting, since my covered butt is one of the only things worth looking at lately ;)
