Month 6 March 2013
MASSIVE improvements for this month. Im getting excited. Energy levels are up, skin is clear to the point it looks fairly normal. The feel of my skin though is very waxy and papery. I bath once only as soon as I get up and cream up in the late evening before bed. Sweating is gone. Nerve pain is gone. I woke up one morning and it was gone. TSW is weird that way. One day you're suffering, the next you're not. My skin still feels sensitive against clothes and sheets still though. A feeling I cant explain and only TSW suffers would understand. Sleep patterns are still over the place. Some nights are good, some are not. I still have the itch attack in the middle of the night. But its not for hours on end like it used to be. A quick scratch then back to sleep. And this is not every night, just some.
As you can see with my photos, a huge difference. No redness, skin is pretty white. I'm not completely healed but again on my way. I still have elephant skin on the back of the knees and back area but it's improving. My pain in the bum thing this month is HIVES! My skin seems to be ultra sensitive. On most of the forums, people seem to think having hives means you're on your way out. So I'm hoping I'm nearly there.
I can get out and about for most of the day now and not have to rush home and have a bath too. Loving this and making the most of it. Making up for lost time. Can't wait till I can go out at night time. It will be like turning 18 again lol.
Oh and I finally went and had the hair cut off too. I've had long hair for a very long time and it was pretty hard to be forced to have it cut off. But the end result made me feel so good. It looked thicker and healthier. So those who are loosing your hair. Don't worry it will grow back and think of it as a NEW BEGINNING!!
Pretty happy with the way it looks. And as you can see I have some deep lines on my forehead, eye area and chin (if that comes up). That's from scratching and it's called lichenification. It will go back to normal with time. So try not to scratch so hard like I did and it shouldn't happen. Use an ice packs to ease the itch xoxo
