Hello! Two days and one week before month 8 hits! I can’t believe how fast time has been going! My skin is continuing to improve, although my face is still a bit itchy at times.
I want to talk about how my health does aside from the skin. Topical steroid withdrawal affects overall health not just skin. Ever since I’ve gotten sick I’ve had trouble with low energy level- and if you knew me pre-TSW, that would’ve been a preposterous idea. Well, I’m happy to report my energy level keeps going up! About a month ago I went rock climbing.
I am able to push through the pain! It’s incredible knowing that I am not only healing on the outside but inside as well. I am able to powerwalk for about hour and a half without getting tired. It seems pathetic from where I used to be but considering how I was seven months ago… it’s everything.
I am also happy to report a big milestone- warm shower without pain! Granted it was very short- just few minutes- but it was amazing how far I have come!
Happy healing everybody! Don’t get discouraged!
