Today I go for my very first Naturopathic Doctor appointment. I'm both excited and nervous. Excited, because I am very hopeful that she will give me solutions to my eczema. Nervous because I have a feeling I'll have to change a lot in my diet, and I'm not very good at sticking to something new in my diet. There are so many 'unhealthy' foods that I like to enjoy once in a while :)
My eczema has been ragging out of control for the past month or two. It is so uncomfortable some days, I just want to hide in my house wearing a turtle neck sweater! I don't remember having it this bad since I was in Elementary School. Then my mom would slather me with my Cortisone cream, and tie tea towels around my arms so I couldn't scratch! I actually did that to myself for a few nights when it got really terrible.
My eczema went away almost totally when I was a teen. I only had a bad patch around my eyes (which is an awful place to get it, not cortisone cream is safe there!). Even our first few years of marriage had only a few flare ups. This year has been SO terrible though. It's time to get this under control.
This is what my eczema looks like right now, and there are patches like this all over my neck, chest, thigh, arms, and hands. Can you say FIRE!!!!
Anyway, if you read this in the morning, could you pray that the appointment would go well and that I would find a solution? Thanks so much!
