I've had it off and on for most of my life. I was actually pretty lucky. Growing up it was really only bad on the backs of ,y knees and sometimes my elbows. The last few years it's been slowly getting worse. Now it's a daily problem. I finally found a doctor who gave me more than hydrocortisone and crappy moisturizers. Unfortunately it comes in small tubes and I can only get two a month. Making it last can be hard. I wish I would outgrow it. But then again, people told me I'd outgrow my allergies, car sickness, and OCD/Anxiety. So I probably shouldn't have believed them. It could be worse. At least I don;t get any on my face or neck.
I'm a mid twenty something woman living in New England with my two dogs. I graduated college in 2008, and by then the economy was tanking. It was not a good time to enter the adult world. I was originally going to Vet school, but developed severe animal allergies. After 7 months of allergy shots, that affected my liver and actually made my symptoms much worse, i had to give up that dream. Now I'm just trying to find a steady job. I had major reconstructive knee surgery in November of 2011, so I'm still healing.
