I Can't Live a Normal Life with Atopic Dermatitis

Last updated: June 2021

I've had atopic dermatitis since 1992, and it's most definitely been a journey...

Journey of a lifetime

It's changed my overall life...the scars...the not being able to live a normal life has taken its toll...anxiety...depression and insomnia...

I've applied for my disability because I am unable to basically function from all the damage it's caused. I just recently got out the hospital, 4 days of nothing but meds and pain...

Hardly recognizing myself

It is hard to look in the mirror and hardly recognize yourself....mine has always hit my neck and arms....this time it hit my face and breast area and boy did it do damage!
