Crummy health issues

(I apologize in advance if this isn't all that exciting to read...I need to vent....I promise I'll have a fun post soon!)

1. Eczema
For those who don't know, I have REALLY bad eczema on my hands. It sucks...a lot.

My fingers are extremely swollen and covered in thousands of little tiny blisters right now. If that's not bad enough, they also itch constantly and are all scaly and dry. It's a huge inconvenience at on a bad day you can about imagine.

I've tried literally everything and even the dermatologist is running out of answers. I hate it. I miss my nice, normal-looking hands.

2. Mystery Symptoms

For a few months now I've been near exhausted every single day. I get enough sleep (9 hours or so) at night, but I'm also needing to take a 2-3 hour nap during the day, just to keep up enough energy to function. If I don't, I'm walking around in a fog the whole day.

I also have a ton of random bruises that keep showing up. Now granted, I'm not the most coordinated person ever, but I don't run into things THAT often. And this is like 10-15 small bruises at once, randomly scattered on my arms and legs. They literally just appear.

I have no idea what could be causing either of these symptoms. I've been tested for anemia and diabetes, so I know it's neither of those. I just wish I could get a solid doctor that I've been to has been able to give me one and it's really quite frustrating.


  1. Hope you feel better! :( Yuck.

  2. thank you :) I went to the doctor on Friday and they gave me a shot, which sucked but I'm doing sooo much better now!

  3. Could be your thyroid.
    I have eczema on my hands too. Shea butter is helpful.
