Well, I have finally gotten into a rhythm and have been going to my immunologists office twice a week to get the Thymosin Alpha 1 shots. I had to set up a schedule and go in to get them done, because the supplies that came with the kit left much to be desired, and my joint pain is so bad, I can barely operate the syringe.

Since I have been on the program, there has been no change, other than new Psoriasis patches that came back where they had gone away after I had started using LDN. It is almost as if the two meds don't play nice together, in that one is cancelling out the other.

I have also incorporated an Autoimmune Paleo Diet as well, and I don't know if it is helping or hurting. I have gone completely gluten, dairy, and soy free, which is extremely hard, especially living in WI and building my Food Truck that will specialize in German Cuisine.

I imagine that the stress from the AU hasn't helped in the healing process either. I read how others have come to "accept it." I wish I knew how they have done that, because I have been AU for almost 15 years, and I just cannot "accept it." Just the thought of looking at myself in a mirror without something on my head makes me feel like I am going to throw up. I have been in therapy for many years, but I have not gotten past the idea that when I go out, I have a flashing light on my head that says, "Look at me, I am sick."

I have about 2 more weeks of treatments, and then they will be done. I guess we will see what happens. I am not holding my breath, because my body built up a tolerance to the Cortisone shots and cream that used to clear up the AA I had in the past.
