Frustration and The Beach

23.02.2012 - Day 103 of Withdrawal

Really frustrated today 'nothing is going right'

- Tested the salt water on Jake's skin, it was fine; no stinging or itching (even on the bad parts).
- Feeling frustrated that he can't enjoy the things he loves yet.
- Worried about the sun on his skin.
- Really wants to get back to work, frustrated this process has taken so long.
- Have mixed Pine Bark extract into Jake's base cream. Mum says it has good healing qualities. Jake likes the feeling of it on his skin.
- First time he has felt his lymph nodes in the groin softer and not swollen.

Top of the chest and armpit still coming off. 
It's really dry and feels like sandpaper.

  1. I can't wait to get rid of the umbrella and go swimming with you babe!
    I'm so proud of what we have achieved thus far on this unreal journey. You inspire me every day to be better physically and as a person. I couldn't have done this with out you, you allowed me to know I had the strength to achieve our goal of 'normal' skin. We are close, yay.

    I'm blown away by your passion for letting the world understand eczema and the effects of the withdrawal from cortisone. I'm so so proud of you for being the wonderful patient and passionate person you are, I can't wait to spend my healthy life with you, I love you to death. Thank you, you sexy thing x
