Back into sport - Cortisone recovery month 9.5

I've been getting back into sport of recent, playing a bit of ultimate frisbee and touch rugby at Albert Park (where the grand prix is held).  Whilst it has been a bit hard on the body to start with, I realised that once the sweat glands started to work, they cleared the dry skin and it all felt great.  In fact, the body is the best it has been since I started.

Good diet and only minimal booze has really helped and I feel like I'm almost at the end of this journey.  To be clear, what I mean by this is that I'm through the bad stuff, now I just wait a few more months for the skin to strengthen and the moisture to come back fully.

To everyone following my progress, please encourage others to do the same.  I've been given a new lease on life and it really wasn't that hard.  I say that in a relative context, meaning of course it was hard, but compared to losing a leg or getting cancer, a year of dry red skin really isn't that bad.

All the best and keep messaging in.

TSW recovery update, doing it in style after 9.5 months

It has been a rocky journey with some ups and downs, but the TSW recovery is going really well as we pass the 9.5 month mark.  I'm confident that in the next 6 months I will be back to normal, as I am already living a very normal life and no longer get comments about being red.
