I Wore A Dress Today!

Recommended Posts

okay I am risking bragging here... hoping I won't experience the retribution of an outbreadk :P

I got this rash, last October (2008) on my feet, ankles, and upper lower legs that made it impossible to wear a dress! Fortunately my job makes nice pants an acceptable alternative. That's ok in the winter and early spring....

but I had a real issue in June. there was this family wedding. I went against all fashion rules and wore dark black pantyhose with my dress... it was the only way to coneal that ugly rash.

I went gluten free early August.. Had another family wedding at the end of that month! although the rash was a little better, still needed to conceal with the dark black pantyhose.

Fast forward to end of October. Sudden death in the family, requiring quick out of town trip for the funeral.. no time to shop. I had in my drawer an "off black" pair of pantyhose, perfectly appropriate, but much more sheer than what I had worn in the summer.

Guess what! My self-diagnosed (and treated, thru gluten free eating) rash had minimized so much, that the remaining almost healed spots, and residual scars, were not that visible thru the panythose!!

it may sound like such a little thing to brag about.. but...I can't help it!

How fabulous!!!! It is worth bragging about. The rash, which I call Plague, can look terrible and make you feel worse. I, too, feel elated that my knees don't look so purple and scabby. The scars are there but they aren't as angry looking and new breakouts of Plague haven't happened since I was diagnosed and went gluten free in September.

Congratulations and flaunt those legs!!

My legs, arms, chest and butt look like a war zone. I don't know when I will be able to show some skin, much less wear a dress. Hose would drive me up the wall and they would have to be opaque, which are back in syle.

Congratulations on the Dress...work it girl!

Congratulations!! You should totally brag! Being able to wear hose at all and then they don't have to be Amish black out hose is a huge victory! Next step ... capris!
