Feeling Furfuraceous

That means “covered in dandruff” or “flaky”. I’m the latter, of course.

So the next time you’re covered in flakes, you can say that you’re furfuraceous (fuhr-fyuh-RAY-shush). It’s much more elegant than plain old “flaky,” don’t you think?

I’m Mariella, and this blog is about my journey through topical steroid withdrawal. It’s a nasty business, but it can be done! You just have to stick to it, and try not to scratch too much (that’s much easier said than done…)! Go to the International Topical Steroid Addiction Network for more information, and remember that I’m just some random person blogging about my experiences. I’m not giving medical advice!
