Some cold hard honesty; if I had have known one year ago what I would have had to go through with topical steroid withdrawal and still after a year be the way I am, I seriously don't know if I would have chosen to do this. The multitude of lifestyle sacrifices, the serious costs involved, the constant sickness and discomfort... It is a huge toll especially when the goal is years away. I guess the good thing is that I never have to relive that last year ever again which is a relief in itself. And for that, I throw a solo punch in the air.
