I am a LONG time eczema sufferer. My mom claims I was born with eczema and much of my childhood memories are filled with trying to manage my condition. In 2010, my eczema went from bad to very bad. I had it all over my hand, arms, legs and shoulders. It really sucked and I hate my skin!
This blog is to help support my desire to get my story out. Its not easy feeling like you are the only person in the world that looks as disgusting as I do at times. Perhaps meeting other people in a similar situation will help me better deal with this cruel condition. I am not looking for your miracle cure as I know one does not exists. Eczema is a chronic condition, one that is managed not cured. It’s finding the magic solution for your particular situation that is the biggest challenge.
My reasons for continuing to deal with this are: I am married with 3 beautiful (and currently non-eczema ridden) children, some fish, a hamster and a really old corn snake. By day, I am a biologist and project manager who has turned into a policy analyst. We live in Ontario, Canada.
Don’t forget to leave me a message.
