Technically I will not be 18 months until the 29th, but there is no February 29. Lol So I am updating today.
This is just a quick note to say that I am doing amazing. My last post I said I was worried that I was starting to flare because my eyes were goopy again, but that cleared up quickly after I got better from being sick with a cold. No issues since! 🙂 My eyes are back to normal. I really do not have much to say. Everything is still pretty much the same everywhere else. My legs continue to slooooowly heal. I hope I can wear shorts this summer!
One thing I have also noticed in the last couple months is how much energy I have again. I knew my energy was lacking during my first year or so of TSW but now that I am feeling great I really realize it. The first year of TSW, I never wanted to cook or clean or do anything. Basically I just wanted to sit on my couch and that was it. Now I am cooking again and I have a ton of energy to get my house cleaned. I can go go go. It feels great. I just feel normal despite having a few lingering issues, and I am hopeful that those will clear in time. 🙂
I have been doing pretty good since my last post. My skin continues to heal and strengthen. I put cream on in the morning after my shower and do not need to put any on throughout the day. Absolutely none! Feels great.
My legs are still a bit scabby, I think they will take a while more to heal.
Overall my neck, which was the worst throughout this whole process is doing really well, except I have this one spot that keeps popping up. However it feels more like normal eczema. It is not itchy all the time. Most of the time I can ignore it. It never spreads and after a few days it flakes off and goes back to my normal skin color. Much more tolerable than this whole TSW business and not really an issue. I can handle it easy peasy.
However, the past week I have been sick with a cold and Sunday morning I woke up with my eyes being crusty. They haven’t been like that in months! Probably not since the fall after coming out of my last flare. Now throughout the day my eyes have been leaky again with that goopy stuff, which not to be gross, but it is the same yellow color as my snot. LOL I say this because I am not sure if it is just because I am sick, or maybe another flare is coming. I say that, because my anniversary flare last year started in my eyes the same way and then went downhill from there. So I am worried.
I am trying not to dwell on it, and praying that it will not get worse. If it does I know I will heal again, but I just really do not want to go through that again. Think positive. Think positive!
