I can’t believe it’s been 4 months. I don’t know how people can live with this for YEARS. Four months is already torture enough.
Since shaving my head, I have been trying to get the dryness down. Not going as fast as I had hoped, but I am doing the best I can.
The spots I have circled are the spots where the hair has thinned greatly. When my hair started growing, these spots weren’t filling in. Very patchy head.
As for my skin, in general, it is still shedding off like crazy. My tub is filled with it everyday (I have to clean it out…). I still have skin in my bed, as well as dried blood and ooze on my pillow from my head. And the amount of skin that builds up on the floor in my bathroom is insane.
Face and neck
They are such an annoyance. The mornings are the worst. I feel so disgusting, raw, and itchy.
Hands and Arms
My hands have been burning a lot lately. They feel very raw. And my legs and arms are usually itchy and I have a hard time ignoring them. I wrap them in sudocrem. It helps me not itch them. Although, at night, I tear at them in bed. Can’t help it.
Thank you all for the constant support and love. I am so touched by the time you all have taken to spread the word and help get my story out to others. It’s an important conversation. I hope no one, not even my worst enemy, will ever have to go through this.
Love, B. R. Wrem
