I dreaded this day but it’s here: The first sign of psoriasis. I know it seems small from the picture (it’s a camera phone, cut me some slack) but my psoriasis seems to be making a triumphant return! yay! No, seriously. My psoriasis seems to be creeping up on me. It started on my legs (as seen in picture, along with a wrestling belt – don’t … Continue reading The First Psign Of Pspots…
A few months ago I was introduced to an amazing group of people that I like to call my “Pso. Family”, and that’s exactly what they are to me (minus the Italian screaming across the table and the occasional “Fuggetaboutit”). Even though psoriasis affects 3% of the worlds population, that’s approximately 125 million people worldwide*, the community of people who are willing to speak about … Continue reading My Psoriasis “Family”
So, I’ve had psoriasis for over a year now. For some reason it seems to pop up more in the spring/summer time than in the fall/winter months (don’t ask me why, it’s usually the opposite for most people).

At this point my psoriasis was undiagnosed and I had just a few areas that had spots. No biggie. I went through with the tattoo. WELL…. Not my best decision. My psoriasis responds to stress. It’s like sprinkling water … Continue reading Tattoos and Psoriasis
O.K. so I don’t think any of the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. cast members has psoriasis BUT I cannot stress how important it is to have support when you are struggling with psoriasis. When I first found out I spent DAYS in bed. You can’t really understand how horrible it feels to have much of your skin taken over by your own bodies immune system. ::: Insert dramatic, … Continue reading Get By With A Little Help From Your Friends
First let me start by apologizing for my hiatus. I’m back! Now let’s get to today’s business… shall we? So we all know my first outbreak was about a year ago. It was misdiagnosed by numerous doctors for MONTHS. This was what ultimately caused my Psoriasis Spiral i.e. not a patch of skin on my body, aside from my face, was not completely covered in … Continue reading The First Sign Of Pspots
