TS Withdrawal Months 7-9

My Neck Has Treads

My Neck Has Treads

Yes Ladies and Gentlemen….my neck has officially landed into tire-looking status.  I swear,  if my car got a flat tire I could use it as a spare.

Now that that joke is over let me tell you what’s going on:

1.  My neck is ugly, swollen, discolored, dry, itchy, flaky and it oozes.  The most oozing happens when I am laying in bed at night, so I have to lay on paper towels placed on my pillow.  I won’t even tell you what I wake up to in the morning.  Dear Jesus….

2. I tried saran wrapping it during the day when it was at it’s worse and I could hardly turn my head but that only did me justice for 2 weeks. Not only did it trap in moisture (which was what I wanted) but it also trapped in some weird stench which I did not want.   I found out that it was better for me to let my neck air out, as uncomfortable as it is.

3. I had to switch from petroleum jelly to jojoba oil as a moisturizer which is helping.  It looks extra greasy but it sinks in okay, feels really nice, is non irritating and it works.

And that is all I have to say about that.  Peace & Love Warriors!

P.S. Just say NO to Topical Steroids!
