I’m able to hide my mutation now (for the most part), so it’s back out into the world I go. I also tried lotion today, and that seems to be going well. I was supposed to stay away from lotion in case it aggravated my already tortured skin, but after four days at home with the heat on, my skin is SO DRY. And I figure if lotion is okay, then maybe sweat is okay, and maybe I can exercise again. So I might go to the gym tonight. Or maybe just run tomorrow morning.
