Hi Everyone,

I haven't checked in for awhile, but looks like there's interest in another meeting. Should we arrange something for August, or is anyone wanting to get together sooner? What days would work best for everyone?

Our usual meeting place is at Baka Cafe in the Runnymede and Bloor area at 6:30/7:00pm. Hope this works for everyone unless there are other suggestions.

Hope to see you all soon!
Gwen

Keep me posted with what date works. Sundays in August might be a bit challenging for me, but if it's the date that works for most. I understand.

Toronto Meet Up! Nov. 30th!!

Hi All!

It's been a very long time since we all got together. I'm sure at this point we're all at very different stages...hopefully healed or getting close. There's been much interest in getting together again to share our stories and struggles.

Looks like it's finally happening on Thursday November 30th at our usual place...Baka Cafe, 2256 Bloor St. W, Toronto @ 6:30 till closing (9pm). We won't be upstairs this time, but a space will be reserved for us in their new section facing Bloor St, ground floor. Lots of street parking or take subway to Runnymede Station and walk one block west.

I won't be sending out anymore private messages, so please check the ITSAN site for any last minute changes or cancellations before you head out.

Please RSVP so we know how many seats to save!!

Looking forward to seeing you all!
Gwen

Hi All,

I won't be able to make it anymore on Thursday evening since I've been asked to visit a mid showcase for clients at work and it's conflicting with this time (to be fair Gwen asked which days would work best it's something that came up after).

As for a quick update, I've been TS free since January 2013 and had it the worst until August 2014 where I finally was able to have periodic remissions before another flare would kick in. I was able to re-build my life after being bed ridden for a year and half and have recently in the past 4 months been grateful for a chance to prove myself in a relevant field of work that I have been working towards since my TSW.

It's been a hard few years. Anyone who is currently going through the worst of it and is committed in wanting to see the light at the end of the tunnel; do your best to find support from whom you can turn to, whether its your family, friends and any helpful physician who will listen and monitor you to prevent any serious infections while your skin, organs and body is having to go through this very demanding and painful time.

I also took my healing and bed ridden time as a way to work on my spiritual and emotional self. Meditating when you can, and learning about health in general and educating ourself is what gave me hope to keep going. I found I was able to build my intuition and internal confidence through this turmoil. I also feel everyone heals differently. My usage was never more than 1% hydrocortisone and protopic on my face and Betamethasone dipropionate on areas on my body. I still looked like a 2nd degree burnt victim for years going through withdrawal.

At the moment, near the end of 2017, I feel like I can build my life again and that's where most of my energy is now being focused on. I am totally down to meet up for coffee with anyone who needs support one-on-one, unfortunately I won't be able to make it this Thursday.

My love and well wishes are with anyone still going through this. Wishing you all the best with healing and with feeling healed too!

Natasha
