I just want to say thanks to those who keep pushing me to stay strong and positive through this hell that is topical steriod withdrawal. You’re encouraging words mean more to me than you’ll ever know. It gives me the fuel I need to keep pressing on, no matter how emotionally or physically hard this process may get! Here’s a few lovely words from my friends who keep me going. These were taken from chat conversations. I pray 2016 brings you all healing and amazing health! You WILL overcome your illness, just keep believing in your body’s natural ability to heal and keep feeding it all the nutrients to restore!
Jen, you’re going to rise out of the ashes and be reborn as a Phoenix does to begin a great journey! I can’t even begin to imagine what you have gone through or are going through but I know that there’s a reason, I can only pretend to be as strong as you, and there’s going to be a huge pay off at the end of all of this. Seriously, I think all this bullsh*t you’ve had to endure has lit a fire under your ass that has made you super ambitious and focused which I wouldn’t think you would have had , had you not had no other choice.
Jen you are so compassionate and good things are in store for you. For all the good that you put out it will come back to you ten fold!
Honestly I see such a bright future for you. You’ve been through this for a while so once it’s over I see you being really successful with your blog and all that. Don’t forget about me when you’re famous okay??
you’re gaining and learning so many more things through this experience (even tho it is difficult). ur greatest ministry will come out of ur greatest pain, and sometimes u are just developing something more to give to the world through this experience. i hope u don’t forget that 😊 u are full of strength, even when things feel irritating. nothing is lost in the kingdom of god. not even your time 😊 love you jen!!! u have the sweetest soul 😊 may god continue to pour out his love to u and show u how precious u are! and the gifts that he’s blessed u with during this hard time. pain shapes you and i know for u it shapes u for the better 😊
Thanks for your well wishes but it’s not I that truly deserves it, it’s you! You’re the one that came out of nowhere and lifted the monstrous and and hefty depression and hopelessness I had this year, if I did not come across you, only God knows how bad I’d bad be right now. I can’t put into words how grateful I am, I’m eternally indebted to you, for I can’t repay what you’ve given me. It sounds like an exaggeration but if you truly knew how much that help meant to me, you’d realize that it’s actually an understatement. I wish I could return just a tiny fraction of your assistance with my sanity by sending you $$$ for your computer, I am super broke right now cuz of TSW and literally depend on money and even shelter from my family, just like I was when I was 5, funny how life works lol The minute I get any cash, I give you my word that I’ll donate to your campaign and also buy some supplements and and support your fantastic mission to help other people. This planet needs more people like you dedicated to supporting others.
Aww Jen!! You are so beautiful. God has us RIGHT where we need to be. It’s so hard to trust when we are in serious pain, or look back on all the years we’ve suffered. But our God knows our every pain and ONE day it’ll make sense when we are in heaven and look back. But regardless, we never stop believing for our healing and trusting God’s promises. I’m right here with you girl ❤
Stay strong & never give up! Healing does happen, and I can’t wait to read your stories of how much better your health is and how you are taking advantage of life because of all the struggles you went through during your healing process!
A parent from the TSW facebook group posted this video about spreading awareness of Topical Steroid Addiction/Withdrawal (Red Skin Syndrome).
In it you will find many parents speaking of thier childs story with progress photos as well. It always hurts my heart to see these babies suffering like this. This is such hell to deal with as an adult, I can’t imagine how these children must feel 😢. Thankfully the parents found the right info early on to quit the steroids and adopt a natural route. Please check out the video below and share it with anyone you know who might have a child with eczema who is using the creams, or contemplating using them. Or anyone with eczema who is using topical steroids. Also check out ITSAN for more info! 💜
Wow, it’s pretty amazing to think how long I’ve been in the game of TSW (topical steriod withdrawal). Right now I’m typing this out on my phone (been having computer issues lately 😞) and I’m sitting in my moms apartment in Florida. Yup, I left Nyc temporarily to help my healing process along. This month as well as most of the summer has been really up & down for my skin. Of course I’m trying to take it all in stride and not be too upset when there are more down days than up.
I hope the reader I’m looking for sees this post….

Eczema you have no place in my body, eczema you have no place in my body. I’m not a prisoner of eczema, I’m not a prisoner of eczema.
Was just saying this mantra over and over as I was battling a burning itch attack 😞. It actually helped, it made me focus my attention on the mantra and the pain slowly subsided. Do you all have mantras you say to yourself?
