Thank you everyone. been in the UK for almost 2 months now. My P looks good. Sometimes red and 2-3 extra spots (I think) but its okay. Will see how it goes during Winter. I'm still using my Linotar cream and it helps . The climate change might affect my P but I'm staying positive. As long as I am healthy then I'm happy. I started a new job as well and with the heating on in the building and wearing a mask for 8 hours a day is not nice but I guess I have to get used to it. The weather has been nice so far and Im still loving the rain :) We talk again in a year about the weather lol.
Like Rita said, get some rays. I hope you are following her advice? Let me tell you, being in South Africa we always have rays. no matter where you go in the house, there are rays, but...in the part where there's no rays (especially in winter), I take a blankie with me, a chair or cushion and I seek the sun. that little bit of sun for 10 minutes, makes a difference on my skin. Remember, even when the sun don't shine, you will get some rays. try it :)
as most of you know, I got married Last December to John and then lock down started and we couldn't see each other for 9 months. yeah...I could've had a baby by now lol. but....I am flying on the 21st Aug to be with John and I can't wait. It has been such an emotional journey and I had so much to work towards and I apologise for not paying attention of finding out how all of you are doing. You are my family...the ones who helped me with advice on my P etc. I have so much to say thank you for. I do hope all of you are well? xxx
Claire, I met my hubby here. On Flaym in 2017. I'm married to him now and let me tell you, I am blessed and I am happy. It took me 9 months to be with him and it all was the worth waiting. Don't give up on love. wait for the right person. if you are meant to be alone then so be it but we all want someone we can grow old with. stop looking for the right person, you don't know what is right in front of you. patience, and you will find the right person :)
Hi Julia: Ive read on trigeminal neuralgia, Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensation from your face to your brain. If you have trigeminal neuralgia, even mild stimulation of your face — such as from brushing your teeth or putting on makeup — may trigger a jolt of excruciating pain.
alcohol can be a problem yes. one needs to learn how to control it. I'm being honest here, alcohol and I aren't friends. I get drunk quickly and do lots of crap but what I have to add is that I have never seen alcohol as problem. thing is ...the person having the alcohol (like myself) is the problem. in how you take it. My system is not built for having too much alcohol. I admit it. I get drunk quick. but learning on how to control the intake is anther discussion. (like myself). alcohol affects people, partners, family members and if we are not mature enough to handle it then leave it. but we don't listen.
Steve- yes she might be your ex but remember, her vision was different from yours. you made a wise decision but she might never had someone to show her a way out?
Rita: in SA, our liquor stores were closed for 2 months. its was sad to me lol. I love my wine!! alcohol is now permitted but sigarettes are banned.... how do you open liquor stores but ban sigarettes? stupid
@ Rita: I'm not up to muc apart from working. working more from home than actually at the office. I have had lots of stress too which triggered flares on my scalp and face. places I've never had P before but I'm dealing with it. I have to be honest to say that my tar cream is helping. it slows the progress of skincells. the stress at work is not helping me with my condition but hey, as soon as I SAY its not worth it, and stay with the mindset, the sooner my P gets better. stress trigger P, and P trigger stress, so the only way to fight it is to not let the stress get to you . talk about it with your co workers and don't be ashamed, we did not choose to have this.
Oh Rita - I just love you. Wine is my national anthem. drink wine and be happy lol. love the "last bit" I love gardening too but my garden doesn't cater for much gardening at the moment but I'll always find a space for something :) it sounds wonderful to get up to 10 C! WOW! never thought that Canada can get to that? ah I love the veggie garden you have. John and I would love to have that when I'm in England. just wish this visa can come though. You have lovely summers Rita!
