April 30, 2014 - Here We Go Again*

I think I am starting Flare #3. Oh joy. What appears to be pre-TSW eczema is covering most of my arms and legs and I just now noticed some elephant skin action around the knees. Itching has remained insane, especially feet and legs, but now I get wet everywhere if and when I scratch. Crap. Oh well, just one more bump in the road to recovery!

It could be stress related. The last few weeks have been a little rough. I miss my mom.

The jury is still out on light therapy. It’s been two months, but I just don’t know. That’s the trouble with TSW… it’s so dynamic you never know what is cause and what is effect. Even though I am struggling, who’s to say I wouldn’t be struggling much more without light therapy? I think the itching is less on the nights I do the therapy, so I am sticking with it.

* I’ve got this line from Michelle Chamuel’s “In My Head” stuck, well, in my head. The song relates well to TSW and I get verklempt when I listen to it.
