And I just wanted to check in/report/send you all love and hugs.


I am doing really well. Like, REALLY well.  :D  I keep saying to my family that I feel like a new person - calmer, more focused, waaaay less anxious than ever before in my life. I stopped the Xanax back in December and have been enjoying this new calm in the center of my being. It's wild. I hope it stays! And my digestion is impeccable - too bad it's not something you can really share with people...well, outside of these forums anyway. :lol:


The rash still comes and goes but it is so much less of a problem: less itchy, flares clear up quickly, no big blisters, smaller hives in general. I am hopeful that the purple-brown spots will fade in time, but honestly, I can live with it. Looking like a leopard-human hybrid is a small price to pay for feeling as good as I do.


And finally, I want to apologize for not being around very much. When I first started coming here I was so thankful for the kind and loving support that I said to myself "You need to make sure you pay it forward when you are better and help others here." But, you see, one of the wonderful things that came out of this horrible, scary, chaotic last year was that I decided to go back to school for Nutritional Therapy Training and that is keeping me VERY busy. So, I am sorry to not be around, but know that I am thinking of you all.


To the newbies struggling with DH: IT DOES GET BETTER! Take heart, you will get through this. Love your body, it's an amazing vessel. Feed yourself simple whole foods so it can heal optimally. (If you'd like to read a good and not-too-lengthy book on optimal nutrition, check out Eat Naked by Margaret Floyd) Sleep, slow down, drink water. Time and patience are your best allies.


Love and BIG HUGS!

(Much Less Itchy) Abby

Thank you all so much! Both for the words of encouragement now, and way back when I wandered in here, confused and sacred. This place is so important!
