I started a new medication and a topical lotion for the hives last week. The lotion has done the most for the hives. Occasionally, I still break out with them, but for the most part, it’s just a waiting for the skin to heal kind of thing.
The medication has helped tremendously with the anxiety. I’m able to taste a little freedom. That’s always a good thing.
I guess my main point for writing this and even publicly sharing that I struggle with mental illness is this: the stigma shouldn’t exist. Mental health IS health. It’s okay to struggle. Just don’t stay there. Ask for help.
May your weekend be blessed with peace, love, and joy.
