Anxiety and itchiness ... crazy itchiness.
According to the other TSW patients this intense itchiness (where you want to get to the bone) is a good sign ... it means that the skin is healing and nerves are waking (or something like that)
but ... the lack of sleep is not a good sign ....
Especially for me ... as I have a baby, a six year old, a 9 year old TSW child ... to look after ... plus cook, clean, teach, nurture ... bla bla bla.
Sleep is so essential ... it is what keeps me together at the moment.
I was up 3times with Eden last night where she woke and simply couldn't go back to sleep again ... so I had to lie down with her until she fell asleep again (usually an hour later).
This is blooming hard!!
We are taking her to our GP today and hopefully will get something to help her relax and sleep at night ...
I'm looking at Eden's skin this morning (ran her a nice warm bath with Apple cider vinegar and epsom salt ... she really enjoyed it ... got the apple cider vinegar tip from the itsan forum :) .... and while I was helping her dry down and get some ointment on herself ... her skin looked like it is actually starting to heal in certain spots (if outsiders had to look at her skin they would get a fright and feel so sorry for her but to us ... who deal with her daily ... this is such a wonderful thing to see).
