Hi Andrea. I used to care what other people think of me when they see me and it broke my heart to even think about it. I was scared. I felt lonely and I just wanted to stay at home and cry. What I found out was people...are so self centered that they actually do not care. If its not about them then it doesn't mean anything. You can't please everyone and to be accepted by ignorant people won't help you. Don't give up on your dreams because of what others may think. Live. Love. Cry. Reclaim your confidence! Surround yourself with positive people because they do not judge okay? Most of all, love yourself and accept your condition. You can make a difference in your Psoriasis. Not people. We are here for you Andrea and we are part of your suffering. Welcome to Flaym my girl!
Ah no, disheartening. I don't think I've ever seen a dermatologist who I've felt has really listened to me about my condition. It's so difficult with such limited time in the doctors chair, and they seem to often just go for troubleshooting type style, rather than understanding your relationship with your skin and what your preferences are for managing it, like asking what you are trying to achieve with it. You are here with us Flaymers now, we are all keeping on keeping on just like you, and are here to share what works for us, and the ups and downs.
