Back in the thick of it

Hey everybody,

I hope you’re doing well. I’m actually not doing so great. The second flare is in full swing. It’s still localized to my arms and neck, but I find with the worsening of my skin, I’m starting to feel the same way I did during the worst of it. Suddenly I feel a little lonely. Like I don’t quite fit in with my own life, as it was only just picking up speed again. I feel lost now.

How can I move on when this beast keeps holding me back?

    • Thanks Lisa. You’re right. Things are a lot better now, but it’s just tough when you get that break, only to have it taken away. It’s like my skin’s toying with me. I sure do hope this is the last straw, though! Hope your healing’s going well.

  1. Mine is just getting the worse of it. worst off i think i have started to get acne.
    was yours bad? like big ones? little ones? SHed some light on your acne times. was it bad? was it all over?

    • Dang, I’m sorry to hear that. How far along are you? Is it full body, or just certain areas?
      I’ll write a post specifically about my acne. Hopefully that will give you an idea of what to expect.

  2. Hang in there! We all hear of those going through a bad flare after their first year is complete….some get it in month 12, others month 15. But often after that big bad flare is a big calm and then a few minor flares – at least that is the pattern I see on many. You’ve come this far through so much – you can do this!!!

    • Thank you, Tracy! Your encouragement is greatly appreciated! I read your blog, and it looks like you’re having a tough time. I’m glad the antibiotics are helping though 🙂 I’m curious to see if the emu oil helps too!
