Jacqueline, 30yrs BRIC
“The only way I could explain the itching is excruciating! I have taken my skin off and need a dressings because it was so bad.
My husband brought me a foot grater, the itching sends you that insane I actually used it all my body ripping into the skin.
I sat for night time end under freezing cold showers tune on my skin until I turned blue.
It made me extremely suicidal and I honestly don’t know how I got through each episode because the worst part of the disease isn’t the liver swelling, isn’t the luminous yellow skin, isn’t the vomiting, the not being able to eat and then many more symptoms you deal with its the itching!
I have always said I fight many illnesses now but the only one that can send me over the edge… is the itching. it burns it stings it feels like millions of pins of stuff in your skin at once constantly all over, it’s mentally torturing it’s just the worst thing I have ever dealt with and honestly the only thing I’m so terrified of happening again.
I have never met anyone with this disease and I really hope no one else has to deal with it, because it’s absolutely horrific.
They tried absolutely every medication/ cream possible and none worked I just cannot simply put it into short words because it’s thathorrific.”
