Hello eczema family. I’ve been reflecting a lot this season. It was this time last year that we joined the course. I was in such a bad place. Crying all the time over my baby Lilly’s skin. I couldn’t concentrate on anything else but helping her and basically just went through the motions for my other three kiddos but was not really present with them. Another mama recommended Dr Temple and the eczema course and we took a chance and signed up. From the moment I went onto this Facebook site I knew it was the right decision for us. I no longer felt alone and this was worth its weight in gold to me.
I had hope for my baby. I started the modules one by one, asking questions weekly each live, trying my hardest to stay patient when Dr. T would keep telling me to stay the course. At some point a few months in I stopped obsessing over each little red bump and each scratch and just let my worries go. I just had faith in the program and believed our time would come. And here we are today. My sweet baby is 17 months, her skin is healed and beautiful and we were just able to reintroduce egg. Yes It has taken us a long time but we had flares and sickness along the way.
We learned how to handle this and now I’m not in a complete panic if she scratches or gets a cold. This picture says it all for us. She has her shirt up and my husband is giving her smooches on her belly. We would never have done this last year. I wouldn’t even put her in a shirt for fear she would get the bottom up and scratch. It was only sleepers for the longest time. I hope our story gives hope to any new members.
We have all been in your place and know your struggles. You will get here one day too and we are all rooting and praying for you.❤
