right, i’m going to give myself another pat on my shoulder..
i survived 8 months of hell!
recalling the beginning of my withdrawal..
it withdrawal symptoms started even before i stopped steroids entirely.
i remember the rashes on my calf, they were like plagues.
it’s red and raised but flat on top.
it started out as 1 or 2 rashes, then multiplied.
after i stopped steroids,
they grew somemore until they merged.
a few weeks later they seems spongy.
and they wouldn’t tolerate anything, even coconut oil.
it just made them itch even worse.
i let them dry out after shower.
that bit of dryness, i still can tolerate.
there were alot of skin flakes that dropped off my legs..
it’s really ALOT.
the skin flakes were really really fine, i thought i had a fungus on my skin because that’s one of the symptoms of fungal infection.
then i had the edema.
it makes walking painful.
and makes me look short. haha!
thankfully the calf got much better after 3 months..
sadly, things got worse at the other parts.
maybe i’ll be better in another month’s time.
