“But you don’t look sick…”
The silver lining. The very vain silver lining: I don’t look sick!
The visible symptoms would be side-effects of the medications I am on:
- I bloat on prednisone
- My hair thins, loses its shine, and falls out on methotrexate
- If I forget to take my painkillers I pale
- I break out like mad
- My eyelashes fall out
The list is extensive.
So is my beauty/skincare regime and so is my diet.
I wrote a couple of posts on my skincare regime earlier. I am very proud of my skincare.
It is nice to know that something in that line-up is working!
After all, if I did not follow it to a tee, I would look very unwell.
Part One explains why this comment is not ok.
Part Two contains my reaction.
