Here We Go Again

As soon as I thought I would finally go to sleep I started breaking out again all over my body. When it strikes it’s like a wildfire you can only hope to contain. I’ve tried every cream in the book. Also, I’m now taking a daily allergy medication. Even still I was forced into the tub to hopefully settle this Neurodermatitis down again. Sadly, I see no soon coming end to this problem.

When the red rash, dots, and stripes appear the only place they don’t appear on is my neck and face. It’s all you can do to not dig in on every itching spot. I’m learning more discipline, but this isn’t the kind of itching you can let sit still with very long. It’s crazy how the same water that can further the problem can easiest settle the problem.

I hate this full on body attack. Yet, I know many who have much worse health issues than me. Among a list long of other to do things I’ve got set up an appointment with a dermatologist and a neurologist. I know of one medication that has helped a friend with the same issue. But, I’ve got to see if I can get the medication and that it doesn’t interfere with of my other non-negotiable meds.

Until then here I am just waiting on this storm to pass. My eyes are barely open as I continue to itch. Just when I think I’m on top of the itching the itching jumps on top of me. All you can do is adjust, choose to rejoice, and hope for better moments ahead. I’m certain I would’ve been in the nuthouse long ago if not for God’s strength and comfort through this process.

“Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again–rejoice! (Philippians 4:4)
