I’ve been going so many places, as a professional patient always does. I’ve had 4 appointments in July and there are 2 more before the month is over. My Guttate Psoriasis is a little bit better. I’m babying the spots and using a few topical treatments.
A few things I’m doing include: water-based lotion, laying out in the sun three times per week for 15 minutes, and Neosporin when I see any pus. (sorry to be gross) I also put some colloidal silver on my arms in case there is a little infection starting. It’s just another layer of things I’m willing to try.
After my horrible reaction, I really did change. When before I wasn’t willing to try many of the alternative treatments offered by my doctor, now I am ready to try almost anything. So, today I received a Myer’s Cocktail, which is made up of B vitamins, C vitamins, and more. My doctor thinks it could help with energy and help with my low levels of B.
The days have been divided each week by appointment days vs rest days. I’m pretty exhausted today after 3 appointments this week. Tuesday’s appointment was weird. Hubby let me out at the door. Dizziness hit me as I crossed the street and I next leaned against a huge pillar for a few minutes. I really thought I would faint. At least I was at a hospital, so I knew someone would help me there.
I was only able to get my sunning once because it rained a good bit this week (and we even had a tornado warning). We don’t have a great safe place so hubby, son, the dog and I crammed ourselves into the coat closet. We were quite ridiculous!
Those of us with multiple chronic illnesses understand that when we wake up each day, we really don’t know what symptoms we’ll face and how severe they may be. I’m going to be working on Plan A, Plan B, and Plan C (will be to go back to bed). No matter what Plan works out each day, I must work hard to accept the results and let that stop me from feeling guilty or depressed.
We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
