Month 28

Hi everyone, I reached month 28 a week ago so figured I'd best do a catch up post. It seems my posts are becoming more and more scarce as time goes on. That's because I haven't really had any major turning points to speak of. I'm still trundling on, however my social life is coming back and I'm practically on full time hours at work. I've started attending the gym, to address the weight gain, and apart from a few blips I'm quite content presently.

I went to see the dermatologist the other day which I thought was going to lead into the monotonous fight that usually occurs but I was told as long as I was aware of the effects, and was regularly monitored, I could stay on Ciclosporin for the present. That is fine with me, as it seems to be actually working right now. They did mention a drug break though which I will have to eventually do anyway but for now it's all good.

Recently I've been watching more and more documentaries and videos on veganism and am really hoping to make the switch soon. My partner is on side with me as he would like to be healthier overall too. I got a juicer for my birthday, which I'm yet to use but I'm hoping it will yield good results for me. If anyone knows any good recipes, that don't contain celery or cucumber do leave a comment!

Here are some photos from Friday.

Thought I'd take a couple of close-ups to show how wrinkled my skin has become around my nose/cheek area. Thanks steroids (& over-scratching!).

Neck/chest looking good

Also thought I'd include this one of me giving this woofer a good old stroke. Not often my skin behaves with furry ones!

The rest of my body is remarkably clear. Although I now seem to be having some other health issues with my stomach and randomly vomiting so my skin is a bit worse for wear this morning. Oh well.

Hope everyone else is doing good!
