I'M TAKING CONTROL AND RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY ACTIONS. I am going to a slimming group and I am going to lose weight. I'm going to stop blaming everything on Ls and get on with my life the best way I can. Eating healthily and trying to exercise in some other way than walking, I have problems with my feet and am waiting for an op. If I have to use Clobetasol for the rest of my life....so be it. Long may I live. I have actually started thinking that this disease has made me start taking more care of myself. I'm rethinking everything and I actually like putting cream on my body. It feels like a treat. After all we would pay for a massage.....
