Thank you ALL for your encouragement and advice this weekend. Today I'm feeling much more positive :)
We spent the weekend with my inlaws, celebrating an early Easter. We wanted to go there ASAP, as Keith's grandma is not doing well at all. While we were there, my skin only seemed to get worse, which sure didn't make me want to spend time out of the house!
I've decided to take Andrea's advice and use coconut oil on my skin for now. I had some at home anyway, from making body butter and lip balm, so I didnt' have to go buy it or anything. I don't know why I didn't do this earlier, since I already had it sitting here. So far it seems to be really helping. My skin isn't nearly so tight and flaky like it was before. I'm thinking this might just work! Drea also posted about this today, which I thought was pretty coincidental.
