So time really does go by quickly when you’re preoccupied with things to do!
Had an appointment with my acupuncturist this morning. She apparently told me to come and see her once a week as opposed to twice a week. You know someone is legit when they tell you not to come so often because you no longer need to. (Some practitioners wouldn’t do that because they want to get more $$). I also overheard her telling my mom that my body is finally starting to rebuild my own defenses and that will be instrumental to helping me battle TSW and eczema. I will continue to itch and get flares but they will not be very intense in comparison to the first 40 days. I asked her to give me another estimate of when this will all be over and she made the same guess-timate of May 2013. She also mentioned that she will have a better idea of things in February.
Will be seeing the new dermatologist tomorrow. I think I will bring some documentation of TSW so I can state a stronger case. I’m curious to know as to whether or not she will acknowledge my condition.
On a side note: can’t believe it has been 3 months! Will probably write about my experiences with acupuncture and common symptoms of TSW and some of my tips and advice in 2013. It gets really busy this time of the year, ya know?
Whatever the case, I’m so thankful to be alive and living life.
