    Go gtreatrl! I’m in the process of being tested for hormone problems and cancer after years of pain, fatigue, mood swings, and recently a lump in my breast. All that after a year of severe dermatitis (like the Red Skin Syndrome all over your body, red, weeping, crusting, burning, prickling, itching nastiness), which began as a child and progressively got worse. I can relate to you and your laughter! God is in control, so when were not crying, we laugh at the craziness. My fiance also has fibromyalgia and undiagnosed chronic pain, fstigue, memory problems,. We had to post pone getting married because my flare began after he proposed, and my fiance, who loves to work hard like you do, has been so sick for so long and it’s gotten so bad, he’s had to resign from two jobs within 12 months. Thank you for sharing practical advice, and reminding us that God is the one who powers our days. I love the idea of playing eye of the tiger during morning prayer. I like ASMR videos at night when insomnia or crazy bug-crawling itching is hitting me at night. I’ll have to add a rotation of fight songs to my morning.

    Grace and peace to you!

    PS: I plan to start blogging in a way similar to you, where I share about my illnesses and progress/setbacks, but also share things I love and just think add fun and beauty to the world, but I have not made it there just yet. I was doing the steroid route, but I stopped responding to the mid-level steroids, so I decided to go down a different route that my MD found called LDA/LDI. The treatment itself plus supplements and anxiety med being kicking my buttnso much as the withdrawal from steroids. At the emd I was using triamcinolone on my face,.neck, chest, arms, belly, and getting half a Kenwood steroid shot every week. I feel great on Prednisone, but I agree that it’s the “devil’s tic-tac,’ as my eczema is wild and wacky times a million once I taper off of it. So anyway, all that to say, if I ever get caught up on things like dishes and buying the special eczema underwear and hammeringndown my finances, then id totally he into stoking my blog into flame and sharing some content with you for when you need to take a hiatus -if is still something you’re into keeping up. You’re such an industrious woman, and I admire you. Thanks again for sharing what you’ve learned through hard experience. <3 Sorry if this message looks cray cray – I've been typing it on my phone in the bath, and the keyboard.covers up the box. 🙂 God bless!

    Hi Jessica, I have lupus and hyperprolactinemia. I just found your blog after watching your TedX talk. Thank for showing me what resilience means in the face of invisible illnesses. =D
