What you don’t see... Here’s to being so vulnerable and feeling embarrassed of these pictures but here goes nothing:
Since I was 6 I’ve had eczema and ever since then it’s gotten worse. Stress, anxiety and depression are all factors that stem from my eczema. I’m constantly itching, emotional, temperamental and just out right miserable. These are two flare ups I’ve had in the past month, one ended with an ER visit because I couldn’t breathe. Simple things trigger it. Yet everything triggers it. The only things that help are 5 pills in the morning, 2 in the afternoon, 5 again at night along with my morning + daily routine.
I don’t always feel beautiful because of it but it does not define who I am. I am a caring, loving, passionate person and I’m here to tell you you ARE NOT ALONE. I am here. I suffer too. Talk with me, let’s make it through. I’m not here to sell you anything; simply to find + grow a community where we can all feel heard and supported.
I am beautiful, you are too. Never forget it. ❤️
