Sorry I've been distant and didn't update after the weekend as I said I would. The calm never seems to last long for me and after a weekend of being a normal person, I found myself with eczema herpeticum again, and that's despite taking a maintenance dose of 400mg x2 daily. Since then I haven't had the lovely skin that I did and it has just been a constant battle to try to regain it. I am however still managing to live a fairly normal life and haven't had any recovery days recently which I can only see as a positive thing.
Still chugging along and I believe I am now 15.5 months into withdrawal. Looks like I'm in it for the long haul. Was going to include some pictures but my phone doesn't seem to want to show the full extent of the damage. Never mind.
