Week 10 Back to School!

So tomorrow I start school.  I a bit scared with how this is going to turn out.  This is the first time in going to be out of my house for so long in one day.  Classes begin at 7:40 and don't end till 4:00!! Not to mention, commuting round trip is about two hours or so. So I will be out of the house for about 11 hours a day! I don't know if my body can handle all that. The AC in the trains and classrooms  dry out my skin so much and it's very painful.

I hope people aren't too surprised with my appearance. A lot of them haven't see me the whole summer, I hope it isn't a shock. 

My arms actually look pretty good though.  

My legs... There's still a lot of weeping and its still a bit swollen. They might look bad, but I have to be honest, it doesn't feel that bad.  

My face and neck. Probably the only parts of my body that are actually painful and annoying at the moment. My face doesn't look bad at all in the picture, but that's probably the lighting. The dryness and the peeling hurts a lot. I do think my eyelids look a lot better though. As for my neck... It's probably just as painful as it looks. There's a lot of oozing and it's hard to turn around.  

Buuuuut, I am feeling somewhat positive right now because of the improvement! I am nowhere as miserable as I was a few weeks ago! Now if only I could stop caring about what people in school will think of me.... That would probably take off so much stress. I guess TSW will help me realize that IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK!!!!!! Right now I'm not 100% at that stage of thinking, but I think I'm getting there.
