Just wanted to let you know

Hi everyone,

I know it has been a really long time since my last update, and for that I apologize. I’ve been swamped with work and school. It’s hard to find time for sleep, let alone blogging!

But I finally have time now, so I figured that I should let you know that I’m healed. In fact, I’ve been healed for a while, but I’ve been reluctant to say anything for fear of flaring again.

But I think that after 27 months, it’s safe to say that it’s over.

I’ve moved on with my life. I’m doing everything that I had hoped I would be doing. It’s almost as though TSW never happened. It’s been such an all-consuming part of my life for the past two years, yet now that it’s over, I can barely remember any of it. Photos are the only reminders I have left that this actually happened.

My skin feels perfectly normal now. I don’t moisturize, and I don’t do any special treatments whatsoever.

I will say that my skin is much more sensitive now. I can’t use most conventional lotions, and the sun burns me very quickly. But other than that, my skin’s great.

So just keep holding on, and remember that you will heal too!
