Eczema (Story 4)
Ever since I can remember I had rashes on arms where my elbow crease is. I used to itch and itch and itch...and ITCH! My arms would get so red and bleed (sorry, I'm not trying to be gross, but it's true). I saw an allergist and was prescribed topical steroids to keep the inflammation down. My eczema was terrible and I thought it was something I would have to deal with the rest of my life. Little did I know, when I changed my diet, my eczema went away too! My arms look normal now, how cool is that? I used to take so many medications and pills. Today I don't take any medications at all. I rarely get sick, and if I do, I google homeopathic remedies and always recover quicker and feel better. I hope by sharing this story with you, you learn something about me, who I am, and why I am a vegan today. If you're feeling brave or vulnerable, or just want to make a new friend, please leave a comment below, sharing something about yourself, so I can get to know you too.
