Just got the official vitiligo diagnosis yesterday. Samantha has a few white patches on her upper arms. Thought it was probably vitiligo, just didn't know if there was anything to do about it. Starting off with a steroid cream twice a day.
Add that to insulin as needed, Synthroid for hypothyroidism and captopril to prevent kidney damage.
It seems unfair that all I can really say about this is it's INCREDIBLY UNFAIR.
Samantha wants to know when the autoimmune barrage will stop. I told her that's #3, that has to be it. Things come in 3s.
For anyone who feels like saying it's possible to have 4-5, please don't tell me.
On with softball season. I think the only thing I can do is make sure she can still do what she loves and whatever may make her feel like a normal teenager.
