Ugh it’s been a hot minute since I’ve had to wrap :( I’ve broken out so badly lately I forgot how miserable it is to have 70% of your leg covered in itchy…it’s not awesome

My mom said shes going to send me to rehab for aleve addiction and my dad said hes locking them in their room and he will just leave two out every morning.

They are kidding…kind of. I’m just always in so much pain that nothing helps but between all my medicines they are worried about my kidneys and liver shutting down.

I’m just so sick of dealing with this all of the time. I just want to be a normal 22 year old…I should have more in common with my cousins than with my grandparents. It sucks.

Talking to other people about psoriasis.

I know its always tough when someone walks up to you and says “whats that?” you know its coming, but its still like a stab in the pit of your stomach.  I have found that most of the time they are genuinely just curious and not meaning to be malicious. I have found what helps the most it not to say “disease”. When people hear that they automatically assume its contagious or something you can fix. Instead I like to say disorder or condition, then go into the not contagious, hereditary script we have all said thousands of times. For whatever reason this always makes them have a more open mind. As a nanny my kids have asked me thousands of times and explaining it to them is harder because they dont have the same understanding as adults, so I like to put it into feelings so they understand “my skin is just angry in this spot” or relate it to animals “leopards have spots and lions don’t” they usually just accept it and move on. The more open and willing I am to answer questions the less awkward and accepting people seem to be.

Anyway I know its never easy but I hope this helps a little?

My skin is clear but my arthritis is worse than ever

Being in this much pain makes me a real peach to be around too…I feel so bad for my family

This is how my past year has gone; compared to last year my legs are much happier! I stopped taking my methotrexate for a couple weeks so I had a few spots pop up but they are starting to fade again so that’s exciting! 

I just thought I would update y’all with how it’s going! Feel free to talk to me any time!!

I joined zoom tan because I’m going on a cruise next month and I didn’t want to burn in the Caribbean and to help fight the psoriasis my methotrexate won’t get rid of and after only one 6minute session my skin looks SO much better! I can’t wait to go back again my ears haven’t been clear in years and now they look normal I’m so happy! Not to mention it’s only 10$ a month so it doesn’t kill my college kid bank account :)

10000% done with my doctor

When I first got there, no one was at the desk so I signed in and sat down. No one even acknowledged me for a good 20 minutes and then when they did one of the nurses said very sassy “oh she’s finally here” woman please I was there for 30 minutes don’t give me that attitude. (and that’s the one nurse I actually like) Then after another 15 minutes I go back there and they take my temperature and stuff. Then I got to wait another HOUR AND A HALF in the room by myself for the doctor. He walked in literally spent like three minutes with me, confused the hell out of me and then was like “k, bye! see you in three months!” are you kidding me??!?!?!?

You don’t even care I just had the worst strep throat/(possibly mono) of my life and that I was on an additional three prescriptions that effect my liver even more??

Also I needed to talk to you about things?? When I don’t have anything to say he spends like an hour with me but now that I actually need to talk to him he cant spend 5 minutes with me?

Dear psoriasis

please kindly remove yourself from my body, you are no longer welcome.

Dear fellow face psoriasis sufferers, this stuff is wonderful! I got it from target for like 4$ after the people at Lancôme told me serum is incredibly important to use before moisturizer and tried to sell me a 109$ bottle of it. Well my broke college kid budget would not allow that so I searched around an decided to give this a try, I’ve been using it for like 3 days and my face looks incredible and feels SOO good! I still have a little redness but its no where near how it was before! Hey anythings worth a try right? If you get it let me know how it works for you :) it’s Boots brand they have a couple different serums I just picked the sensitive one because I have sensitive skin but I’m sure the others are just as good!
