So the month of May for milestones. I can manage to bath every second day. Whooohoooo !! Moisturising only once a day and nothing at night. I am still using the same moisturiser but I'm hunting down a more natural mix as I feel I need something richer or oilier.
I still have swelling around the knees and a little around the elbows but are very slowing going. Elephant skin is really annoying me. How long can this go on? I'm hoping it will be gone by the Aussie summer so I can hit the beach again. My hair on my legs have started to go back. This actually kind of made me sad because it was like having a permanent wax. But this is good, it shows everything is heading back to normal. I think a little of my head hair is growing back but it's hard to tell if it's broken hair or new hair.
The biggest high light for this month for me was heading out on the town for two nights. WOW one night was for dinner and a movie. Although my legs ached like mad during the flick but I managed to get through until 11pm but was dying to get to bed. Another night was just dinner with the girls and again I got through until 11pm. The aching legs are a problem as they make it extremely uncomfortable. I can feel the fluid building up if I walk around too much. The extra skin makes me feel a little depressed but like I said they are getting better. The thought always sits there "when will it end" Here are my beautiful knees from month one to month 6. A huge improvements but they are still knobby and puffy. Ouch.
