Zoloft, you ain't cutting' it for me no more!

(let me clarify, I am on Zoloft not Kline!)

Well, where do I has been a tough few weeks......finally after going back to full on flares, oozing and crazy itching, Kline is starting to get breaks again.  His neck is still oozing but it looks like everyday it is a little bit of a smaller area.  We spent a few days stuck back in the tub...but thank god there were a few days this week, where he didn't tub it till evening! He sleeps from 2 am or so until, 2 pm. So we are still very much vampires! I wish there was a quick fix to the steroid withdrawal, but unfortunately right now, there is none! Sucks!

Kline turns 4 next week, so exciting!!!  If anyone would like to donate to the international topical steroid addiction non-profit in Kline's name, that would be soooooo appreciated!! Please go to to donate.....anything helps them spread the word to help other suffering just like Kline.

Hopefully the itchy bastard will stay away for good in Kline's 4th year.  We are so over him!


Kline and I went to the beautiful hot springs again to see if they would big difference! ;(

Also, here is one of the best videos I have seen made by another topical steroid addicted is funny, honest and very informative! Please check out Miss Kitty Fantastico's you tube here!

Love to you all and happy healing!

Sweet Nina is healed!

Nina Before and After Topical steroid addiction withdrawal

Here is a video of Nina in one of her worst flares Click here

Click here for some more videos of Nina's progress 
I would love to introduce our dear friend and fellow red skinner, Nina!  She is so beautiful on the inside and out and I am so lucky for having met her!!  I am so happy (and hopefully for Kline) because she is healed from topical steroid addiction!!!!  She used for a lot less time than Kline considering her age but it gives me hope that some day soon, Kline will be itch and rash free just like Nina!

Here is her story!!

"I'm nina, I'm about to turn 28- and for the past 9 months I have been through the hell that is topical steroid withdrawal. I was born with eczema and my parents were advised to use steroids sparingly when I was a toddler. My condition cleared until I was a teenager when it returned mainly on my hands. I would use a potent steroid ointment (betnovate) on and off. Then- 2 years ago, my condition flared and got worse and worse. I was advised to used super potent steroids (clobetasol) over my entire body. I did this for around 6 months. I was fully body red and burning. I then came across ITSAN and stopped steroids cold turkey. Attached is one of my before and after pictures."

We love you Nina and thank you for giving hope by telling your story!!!!
