Day 24. Blood Tests



It's my brothers birthday and have had a wonderful (minus constant antagonising) time with my dysfunctional separated family, who save 1 sister all got together for a few hours to celebrate.

My skin is looking worse. I think it's because my skin is getting so dry and am not using moisturiser. Used Aloe Vera gel yesterday evening and that has helped significantly, and didn't break me out so will continue using it sparingly. Don't want to wear it during the day, as have done before because it makes my skin feel tight and look shiny, want the opposite effect. Need a more effective lip moisturiser, everyone raves about aquaphor, but unfortunately like many other products highly rated on this site can't be found in London. Ordering online is expensive. Student (Yawn).

It could just be that I'm scrutinising every flaw and imperfection as I'm desperate to make steady progress, to increase my dose. I just want to keep making progress, the past few days have seen little and my face looks worse because it's getting dry and flaky, spots look more red. I have noticed that my forehead looks a little bumby, which is distressing as I've only had the odd spot here and there for months now.

Got my monthly blood check today.

Appointment with my lovely dermatologist on Monday. Overall it's not too bad.

My brother's birthday was yesterday and my grandfather came over and was wondering if someone had given me the "evil-eye" on my face :- argh! Good luck with your treatment :)
