Only God Calms The Insanity
This neurodermatitis is driving me crazy. It doesn’t matter what time I go to bed it wakes me up sometime before 6am with intense itching. I just have to keep the itch relief cream near me at all times. When you have something the doctor says is nerve driven and not curable it’s all you can do. Not to mention it’s able to be stimulated with or without water, by heat, sweat, or just because your skin is dry.
And, I’m not talking about just one place. Anywhere from my chest, hands, legs, or feet is up for grabs. I have been staying a lot more on top of it recently. Even still there is at least two to three times daily you want to scratch your skin off. Earlier I was literally quoting scripture in my mind as I tried my best to refrain from scratching myself anymore than absolutely necessary. Because the more you scratch the more you’re going to itch. In fact, you’ve just woken up the bear and created more wounds.
I still plan to go to a dermatologist, but I’m just glad I’ve got anything to comfort my skin. I make sure my skin doesn’t get too dry all throughout the day. However, even the best of effort has proven I need God’s help every step of the way. Here is the scripture I was quoting earlier in my mind. It helps comfort me with many things. It reminds me that with God’s spirit living within I’m not powerless and never hopeless.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7)
