I was thinking over the weekend of all the changes I have noticed since being diagnosed. I did not realize how sick I was, or looked, before I was diagnosed. Looking back at some photos from my summer holiday last year I was taken aback by how ill I looked. I was so thin and washed out looking. My arms and legs, which used to be muscular, were so thin, like twigs. All of my clothes looked like they were hanging off of me. My hair was dull and my eyes did not shine. Not only did I feel exhausted, I looked it as well! I remember early last year being in the bath and looking at my toes and noticing I had no hair on them anymore. At the time I thought this was just lucky! In the nine months since I was diagnosed I have drastically changed. I have regained the weight I lost (with some extra due to the neurontin - working on that), I have colour in my face and my hair is shiny. My eyes look healthy again and I have back the curves I lost. I am slowly toning and regaining my muscles due to exercising again and yes, the hair on my toes came back!
