In my last post a lady linked me to her video that she had created about her experiences with this "Red Skin Syndrome" that is brought on from Topical Steroid Withdrawal. I was quick to show some of my immediate friends and family as she explains it all so, so well and her story is extremely similar to mine. I also like her comical way of putting the video together. It made it that much more "real" and there's definitely no pussy-footing about (no pun intended Miss Kitty Fantastico!) she gets straight to the point.
So please take the time to watch this, it really is interesting!
In news of how I am today, well I'm not good really. I only woke up at 11:30 which is hugely late for me but the truth is I've been avoiding getting up because it just feels all too raw and painful today. It's all because of last night's antics and frustrations. I came home from work expecting to be able to have a nice relaxing bath and the hot water stopped being hot when I'd only filled a small amount of the tub so sitting there on the bathroom floor in a state of itchy frenzy, with no one to support me I had a bit of a break down. It took about an extra 40 minutes or so until I could run my bath.
It will sound beyond trivial to some that I wasn't able to bathe as and when I wanted to but it isn't because I want to, it's because I need to for the sake of my poor skin. If I don't pander to the needs of my skin as soon as I can life just doesn't feel worth living.
