I am however still suffering though. I'm just going to keep this post short and sweet as I have a lot to do today (see: cake), but I can say that even though I'm still having blips and flares (mostly due to infections!) it has still been the best decision I could have made. I was looking at some of my old photographs and even though I still get blotchy rashes from time to time they are no where near the same in their formation.
That isn't me any more. The rashes are completely different.
I'm also pleased to say I'm no longer suffering from some of the unwanted side effects of topical steroid withdrawal either. For instance I no longer suffer from this:
Full body coverage
Red sleeve effect
My allergies have distinctly diminished, though still exist only in a lesser form of severity. Life has been slightly easier to endure, though it would still be nice to be given an end point to this suffering. It would also be nice to stop getting so many bloody infections too. That is my main nemesis at present - not withdrawal but infections, both viral and bacterial.
I hope everyone else is well, and I hope I have given others courage to partake in this wretched journey that we should never have to face to begin with.
