May 25th! Today marks 16 months for me going through Topical Steroid Withdrawal.
I am writing to you from England which makes this even more exciting! I will be here for a while visiting my in-laws. Jack and I haven’t been here since June 2014. Much overdo!
Like most Red Skin Warriors, change is not our friend. The traveling, time change, colder climate, and different environment made my skin get a bit upset. I’m still trying to settle it down.
Very, very dry skin and red patches. The itch is a bit aggravating as well, but I’m pretty used to that by now. However, I did have a reaction to something that gave me hives. I’m trying to figure out what it was. May be the water here, or the baby oil I used in the bath.
Lovely hives. I’ve never had them during TSW until now.
I also am still flaking, just not as much as I used to. It’s still enough to make a difference. I’m always having to sweep away dead skin everywhere.
It is what it is.
AND… I was interviewed two weeks ago by a news company based in the UK. The interview made its way into a few different online news sites. Of course, they love to sensationalize, but I was able to edit my original interview to be as honest and truthful as possible.
Hoping to have lots of fun pictures for everyone this next month with lots of things going on! TSW can take a lot away from you and can be a pain in the ass, but I’m hoping to make the best of my time here in England!!
Love, B. R. Wren
