In high tide and low tide, I’ll be by your side
From my post on March 29, 2011 (Beware Sailor, take it slow. Easy come, easy go!) I talked about a Chinese doctor I was seeing BEFORE I consulted my family friend doctor.
In October 2011, I found outt he had been arrested after an infant developed drug-induced kushings syndrome. The authorities found corticosteroids in the cream he was distributing (which I was still using) and arrested him.
I cannot describe how distraught I felt after I found out the news. He cheated me. The doctor lied to me and told me the cream was all natural Chinese herbs. Out of pure greed, he cheated several of his patients; promising natural healing in exchange of a hefty price.
When I stopped using the cream, my eczema symptoms started coming back. My face began showing signs of rosacea and rashes. That doctor fooled me. He offered me FAKE relief and FAKE healing. I couldn`t even be angry towards him because of how petty he was- his actions were so inhumane. Out of pure selfishness, he imposed greater sickness to so many children and adults who sought his help.
After a lot of reflection, I was disappointed in myself for not seeing the misleading attraction of this doctor and his cream. His cream worked SO quickly and offered such fast relief that I really should have suspected foul play. After years of relying on the quick fix of corticosteroids, how did I not see it? How did I forget that eczema is something that needs to be healed from the root problem not the exterior?
Like many things in life, eczema is something that takes time to control. It requires patience and discipline. To have an eczema-free life, you cannot expect to wave a wand and see it disappear. Never trust somebody that offers you FAST HEALING because I guarantee you, it will come back full force.
Do not be discouraged though. The journey of eczema healing is long and rewarding. You will learn to appreciate the simple things in life as you see improvement in your skin. If you engage in self-reflection, you will also see how much you’ve grown under your skin. You will become a stronger person with disciple and implicit happiness. Bon Voyage!
