2.5 Years After Withdrawing from Topical Steroids...

2.5 YEARS AFTER STOPPING STEROIDS
(this post says it is posted in 2013, I have moved it on the calendar just so it sits in the right spot on my blog, but today is the 18th June 2014)
So.. a lot has happened since I last posted.. 
In short, we travelled through Vietnam, came home and started a family (got a dog..a golden retriever.. her name is Rocket), moved interstate to the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, Adam Scott became no.1, Jake's skin remains beautiful and he has started his golf coaching business! Jacob Killeen Golf 

I am so proud of everyone who has found us and gone through this struggle to live our better quality of life and health. 
Nothing makes me happier then watching Jake stroll out of the house in a T-shirt and shorts..
I love you Jake!! X

Quick Update

If you are new to our story please visit Here.

Just wanted to drop by quickly, say Jake is healed (I will post pics sometime soon) and I can see that so many other people are starting to write blogs and starting the withdrawal, so I just wanted to send some love and say that life is 1Million times better on the other side.

Visit me on my Facebook page Tone Up Your Lifestyle if you have any questions (you can inbox me there), or if you'd simply like to follow our diet /lifestyle :)

We want to thank Kathy from Witherspoons for supporting Jake with oils in the previous months, which may have helped in part of the healing. The website is Here. The one Jake liked was called Working Hands. He liked this oil because it went straight into the skin, kept him moist for quite some time, and it didn't sit on top of the skin.
With this condition it's so hard to pinpoint if something is actually working, or if it is just the time for that part of the process to heal. Nevertheless, the help we received from Kathy was amazing; such a kind and generous woman to help us like she has. Thank you Kathy xx

LOVE YOU JAKE, SO PROUD OF YOU AND US XOX

You Will Heal, We Have Proof

If you are new to this blog, please see the post link Reflection which will lead you to the start of our journey.

If you're interested in our lifestyle and the food I make for Jake, here is my Facebook Page
Tone Up Your Lifestyle - Feel free to private message me through my page.

Again we just wanted to shout out to my parents for being... and still being so supportive, we love you and couldn't have gone through this without you both!
Jake still has the best skin he feels he has ever had. Not only does he have nice skin, he also has an immune system which is not suppressed, bowels, kidneys, a liver, a heart, and a gut that are now extremely healthy, functional, and not at risk of brewing diseases.

Below are articles worth reading for those who are still trying to find the answer to their worsening eczema. There are more links as you scroll through previous posts.

JAKE'S WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS





















































1 DAYS WORTH OF SHEDED SKIN

update.. OVER 1 YEAR

So it has been over one year since Jake stopped using Topical Steroids.

Long story short, we came home from Hawaii, Jake's skin flared, he fell into deep depression, my mum and dad took him to their place again and looked after him for another 2 months. (Thank you mum and dad you are incredible xx).
Jake came home to me on he 25th of September, had another flare on the 5th of November but it was not as bad as the one before and lasted about 15 days (4 days of wetness, 4 days of dryness and then the skin came off).
For the past month Jake has felt and looked great. 60% of his body is better skin then he has ever had.
We are really happy.
We became good friends with Josh Josh's Blog , who is also going through TSW. Josh is 3 months into his withdrawal. We had a BBQ with him yesterday and made some footage together. Link below..

Merry Christmas to all the sufferers and carers, sending you some love x

More Hawaii...

Jake protects his new skin from the sun as much as he can without getting over heated... hence his linon  pants.
