Almost 7 months since diagnosis and self care is the way forward! I dont think i'll be 100 percent ever again or at least not for another few months minimum, but with vitamins, sleep and a lot of water I'm beginning to feel better
The eczema that developed following GF has not gone away but it is managable and mainly due to the cold months, im still tired but I'm a student so I was pretty exhausted even before becoming ill. Im vegetarian which might not have aided my recovery time but I eat many many many nuts and pulses etc, meat substitutes and soooo much fruit and veg. The vitamins i take are as followed:
-evening primose oil
-hair, skin & nail vitamins
-vitamin b-complex and B12
-acidophilus (live bacteria)
-loratadine (helps with the itching from eczema)
Slowly slowly SLOWLY i am beginning to feel myself and I wanted to post this to reassure people that it does get better even if it does feel like the GF is coming back when you fall ill with a cold for example. Just remember that your health is more important than your exams or finals or your work and that you must take time to relax, get good sleep and take care of yourself.
I defo found a lot of reassurance in this forum
