hello, i was just wondering if there is anybody out there with severe eczema that would like to have someone to talk to...someone who actually gets the pain you go through rather than people who will never understand trying to give you tips. i am 15, 16 next month and i just want a friend that can be there for emotional support while i go through a flare up. i have had really bad eczema since i was 10 from a traumatising accident that triggered it. ever since i have not been myself. with the regular hospital check ups and the sleepless nights im just wondering if i will ever be the same again. people say its never too late to grow out of eczema, however i think its not one of those cases. i rarely tell people about my condition and often feel embarrassed, so i do everything i can to hide it. i would never leave the house with my arms or legs out as i couldn't stand the staring and constant looking i could imagine i would receive. i have changed my diet so i dont eat meat or barely any dairy products to control my flare ups and what causes it, but i think it is down to my stress levels now. if you want to know anything about me just message back and we could exchange tips and help each other out. i just really want to beat eczema and not let it continue ruining my life.
