"Life is too short. I can't control everything in my life. Trying to is exhausting!!" - member of MyEczemaTeam

Members on MyEczemaTeam have various strategies for letting go of control and fear, including:

2) opening up and trusting others
3) organizing or cleaning the house
4) reaching out for support from other members on MyEczemaTeam
