2 Years, 24 Months, 733 Days off Protopic

2 Years! Wow. When you are in the beginning stages, you feel like this marker is so far away. Its finally and here and so worth all those tears and pain. I am doing so much better than those early stages. I hope I will never take for granted having nice skin again.

So how are things today? Well I have some slight skin issues, just a bit of normal eczema on my palms, neck/chest, inside of my lower arms, thighs, and lower legs. These spots are a bit eczematous but it hardly bothers me. I don’t really think much about it. I am still seeing a homoeopathic doctor and he believes that these spots are due to hormones. I am due to get my period this week, so we will see if these spots clear up in the next week or two.

I even started going to the gym again and working out with a personal trainer and can sweat like crazy with hardly any problems.

I sleep great. My itching is about a 1-2 out of 10 depending on the day. Even when I do scratch, it is a normal scratch. It is itchy, I scratch it, and then that’s it. I no longer have the hour long scratching sessions. No flaking, no oozing, no pain. My life is 100% back to normal. It feels great! I thank the Lord everyday for bringing me so far and healing me so much. It is truly a blessing from Him.

Do I think my TSW is over? I am not sure. You really never know with this beast. So for now I think I will just say lets wait and see how things play out over the next few months. But for those in the early stages take heart, you will not always be suffering.

If you have any questions, please ask. 🙂 Take care.

    • Hi Maarten! Hope your doing well! I am doing pretty good. To be honest I have been in a small flare since my last post. I am kind of wondering if its a anniversary flare. But I should stress its a SMALL flare and I am still living life 100% normal. I still feel great, other than a few small spots on my body that are flared up. I will have do an update soon. 🙂
