It’s been awhile since I’ve updated this blog. I’ve been pretty busy with family visiting and traveling but I will try to update the blog weekly from now on. Good news: my fingers are completely healed after all the flakes fell off! Bad news: my face has gotten really bad.
The past week was really difficult to get through but I’m really seeing progress after making all the changes I have to the products I am using and my diet as well as staying on top of things.
My shipment from 100% Pure came in and I’m really happy with all the products!
Before I talk about my new discovery, I want to talk about positivity. This is an extremely difficult process to go through but the thing that is getting me through it is my optimism. At this moment I have cotton gloves on my hands and I can barely move my fingers. I feel so useless because I can barely pick something up in fear that I will rub my hand eczema on it and cause weeping. However, because I am hopeful and look at the positive side of my eczema in terms of how it is improving, I don’t feel down and hopeless. Months from now (maybe years) I hope to be eczema free. The crazy thing is my parents are the ones who are worried and sad for me, but I keep telling them and myself that I am healing.
It’s been a rough couple of days since my last blogpost. My fingers have developed blisters to the point that I can’t curl my fingers into a fist anymore. The sight is ghastly. I am now wearing cotton gloves on my hands to (1) not look at how bad my hands are and (2) to keep the moisture locked in.
I can’t believe it’s been a month since I stopped using topical steroids! I’m so excited with the progress I have made and am proud of the resilience I have to keep this going.
