18 Months Update

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! πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ™‚

  1. Glad to hear your doing great! Gives me something to look forward to. Haha i’m almost in my 13th month and finally coming out of a flare similar as yours at the time. I really hope I follow your timeline / healing! Keep trucking and keep us updated it’s a big help!

  2. Happy to hear you’re healing:)
    I like the cat picture. My own legs are healing slowly as well so like you I’m looking forward to wearing shorts.
    Here’s to healing and stopping steroids!

    • Hi Maarten! I used Cetaphil cream the whole time. It stung a lot when I was flaring and raw I will admit that, but it was the only thing I was comfortable using. I was too scared to try anything else in case I made things worse. I also used Vaseline on top of that on my worst parts, like my neck, just so that I could have a bit of movement. Now that my skin is doing well it does not sting any more thankfully. πŸ™‚
      Hope you continue to get better πŸ™‚
