This post is a perfect example of how devastating TSW can be. The highs give you a false sense of security. Like you're more healed than you actually are. Then when you flare, it makes it seem like it's worse than it actually is and you feel devastation. I was feeling great! Skin soft. No pain. MINIMAL itching. Minimal dryness. Spent some time in the sun. (I am only posting the swimsuit pics so you can see how great my skin was). Then, the day after I laid out in my swimsuit, I flared massively. I just wish it would be all or nothing. But we're powerless and at the mercy of this completely avoidable and unnecessary disease.
