1.21.13 Day 44: Less Ibuprofen was needed today :) although my forearms felt raw and painful (someone on the ITSAN forum described the feeling as having a horrible sunburn then scraping gravel over it).
|Yeah it wasn't so fun to go and talk to people at work that day|
1.22.13 Day 45-1.25.13 Day 48: My arms changed from bright red and raw to light pink and dry these days. I have been spending a lot of shower time scraping off insane amounts of dry skin.
|much better than a few days ago!|
|No longer raw! Just red for now|
|right arm dry and red|
1.26.13 Day 49: my skin felt strong enough today to use a loofah in the shower! I am still scratching off tons of skin from my face/neck/chest each shower. I seem to be flaking dry skin with every move. I am constantly having dust off my shirt and have blow flakes off of my glasses that have fallen from my forehead. It is very attractive.
1.27.13 Day 50: Just feeling very dry today, otherwise I feel great. Celebrated 50 days steroid free with some pretty pink nails at my favorite salon.
|Pink nails to match my pink (not red!) skin :) |
Song for the week: Dear Jack - Jack's Mannequin
" Dear Hope, attach it to the end of your rope. A rope that wove ambition in with sorrow, distancing tomorrow, tomorrow's come and past....Dear Jack, Wherever you are, hold tight. Wherever He is, shile light tight there. Be strong I dare. I know it's hard but I will wait. I will wait."
