I just want to share again a link to this blog, about a mom who was on a quest to cure her son’s eczema and ended up using SolveEczema.org: Sammy’s Skin – The Story of a Boy, His Eczema, and the Quest for a Drug-Free Cure.
Much of what I do with SolveEczema.org is try to figure out how to get people over all the typical barriers and myths so that they understand enough to do their own problem-solving and persist with the strategies to solve the eczema. I heard from Sammy’s mom when she was in the middle of her quest, and given the many barriers, I really feared she wouldn’t be able to persist with the site, even though I thought her son would probably benefit. Not only did she persist, but she has started a bulletin board where she is helping other families who want to use the SolveEczema site, and moderating with two other moms: http://solveeczemaforum.proboards.com
I have always wanted to start a bulletin board myself; I’ll be very honest that I think these dedicated moms are doing a better job at encouraging, answering questions, and creating a community than I would have. We all learn from each other.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
