Progress pics aka My skin is trolling me: June 21, 2013

Sigh. I guess I was feeling too comfortable or something. 

Two nights ago, I was feeling pretty good about my skin perhaps making a turn around. It was flaking but not really super red. I hadn't been sleeping on my regular schedule but I still was able to get my hours in. Just decided to go to work late.

Then BAM. My skin up and decided it woudl be great to keep me up all night to the point where I woke up with scratch marks all over. I scratched my jawline raw on both sides and some parts of my shoulders. I rolled around all night and any tiny sound would jolt me awake.

Yesterday at work was pretty rough as my skin just felt like it was falling off under my clothes. I had to break it to my coworker about the misery that my life was. At least he had experienced eczema and was sympathetic but said, yeah. He could tell I was not 100%. Poop.

Then this morning, to my dismay, all my redness was back in full force. It also felt in the shower like way more skin was shedding. I know shedding is a sign that my skin is turning around but that metallic bloody smell just irks me and I can never shower it off! 

At least it's the weekend and I don't have to worry about going to work for the time being but man, FML. 

Oh, the devastation. Redness back everywhere and bumps back on my tummy. ARGH. 

First progress pic of back. It looks worse than it has for the first month. 


  1. Awwww megan.
    Lets hope we both get a turn around soon. At least ur face isnt red and rashy like mine.

    1. Yes, here's to hoping, although it sounds like there's worse to come at about 6 months :(. My face is actually pretty red out of the shower. My iphone camera kind of washes out everything since I'm using flash. I have a few cracked areas on my face where I scratch them raw but isn't visible here :\.

  2. U cant tell at all.
    We will heal megan. We are pretty much the same in terms pf withdrawal time. Lets pray for speedy recovery for both of us :-)

    1. Thanks Lisa. Yes, I'm trying to stay cautiously optimistic because I know we will heal but it's just a matter of time. In the meantime, we just have to stay as comfortable as possible. :)
