Anyway, enough complaining. Here are things I am grateful for:
1. MY HUSBAND!!! He has been so amazing during this whole process. I love him so much. He works so hard yet never gets frustrated with all the slack he's picked up when I'm basically an invalid (which is pretty much all the time lately), and is always there to hug me and comfort me when I need it. Even during my darkest hours, he can make me laugh. I would say we have a really good laugh at least once a day. Those of you going through TSW know how depressing it can be and sometimes it's hard to even smile so being able to laugh feels so good. It reminds me that there are good times ahead.
2. My husband. Lol. Seriously, he is the reason I am able to get through this.
3. My health. This is a funny one because obviously I am sick. I look in the mirror and I see a sick person. But I am not dying, I don't have cancer, my son is healthy, my husband is healthy, what more could I ask for? One day I will be done with this and I will be stronger for it.
4. ITSAN. I don't participate too often in the forum but I know it's there for me if I need it. What better place to get information than from other people going through the same thing?
These first 2 pictures are from a couple days ago after an itch attack. See the oozey part at the bottom of my neck? That's the part that has been killing me lately. It's weird how the places that hurt the most are barely visible.
The next 3 pictures are from today. Although it doesn't look much better, it FEELS better. No oozing! And that's all I care about right now!
