When you are going through eczema, topical steroid withdrawal or a flare up, it can put you in a dark place.

It is very hard understand that you’ve been planted, unless you see or hear that perspective.

Managing a chronic condition like eczema or dealing with the ugly side side effects of topical steroids is no easy feat.

In the midst of all the chaos, the last thing I thought of was patience. All I wanted was to get back to normal.

But maybe trying to be “normal” all a long got me here in the first place.

The healing journey requires you to grow into a new version of yourself.

It will also challenge you to try new things and approaches that may seem “unconventional” but are actually not.

So whenever you feel like you’ve been buried, remember that you’ve actually been planted.

The only way to grow is surround yourself with ideas, food, people and activities that nourish and nurture your mind, body and soul.
