I haven't posted in about a week, because I've had the kids off school and we have been doing lots of fun stuff like visiting the zoo and going to the cinema, hence the blog got pushed into the background and forgotten.
I suppose it's a good thing; a sign of healing. I tend to blog a lot when my skin is bad, as I am stuck inside with not much else to do, so I figure I will channel my frustrations by turning them into something useful by blogging and chatting on the Itsan forum.
The point is, my skin is OK right now and probably will only continue to improve as the sun starts to show itself. This means I am likely to be spending more time outdoors and less time hunched over the computer.
Another BIG change that will be happening for me later in the year is that I plan to start homeschooling my autistic son in September, which again, will probably leave little time for blogging.
I just hit the 27 month mark and I am doing well, but I've been blogging consistently about my experiences during that time and I sort of feel that at this point, I've said about everything I have to say on the subject.
So for now, I will be out there living my life and giving the blog a rest. I hope you all understand. I have put many hours into creating a resource here and I hope people find it useful.
I have taken photos and shared my experiences trying out different methods of comfort, which may or may not work for others. Although I get messages asking for advice, I never give out advice about topical steroid withdrawal, as I believe that it is a very personal journey and individuals can have very different reactions to treatments. Besides, I am not a doctor and so I am not qualified to give medical advice anyway. I can just share what worked for me.
So...this is the end...for now. I will resume the blog at some future point, when I can hopefully share some fantastic photos of my healed skin. And of course, if there is any important TSW news, I will also aim to share it here.
The massive pageviews never cease to amaze me. I often wonder who all of these people are and what their personal stories are. I hope that something I have written had helped each person who has found this blog.
In the meantime, feel free to browse my old posts or take a look at some of the excellent blogs on the right hand side of this page, who continue to carry the baton for TSW bloggers.
Goodbye for now, dear readers. x
