Diary of Topical Steroids Withdrawal at Hannan Chuo Hospital
I would like to share a comic by Ms. Yoshimi Numajiri, who tells her experience at Hannan Chuo Hospital in 2012. She is a professional Japanese comic artist and spent 40 days in hospital for topical steroids withdrawal. Hannan Chuo Hospital is one of the few (perhaps only) hospitals in Japan, where you can stay for TSW. I've written about the hospital several times in my blog along with Dr. Kenji Sato.
Sometimes I've wished that there was an actual TSW village, where you can spend your entire recovery time with fellow patients. I think Hannan Chuo Hospital is the closest to it. It's interesting to look at it through Ms. Numajiri's eyes, and certainly there are many details which we can relate to.
The comic is written in a Japanese manga style, so please read from right to left, top to bottom.
