hi I am jayne an have had psoriasis for over 30 years - am now young free and single ( ok forget the young bit lol ) Watch out world - here i come !!!!
When I was a child, I wanted to be a musketeer (was a bad ass tomboy at the time) I had the sword, clothes, shoes everything. I was pretending to be Aramis and my brother was Athos but...he was my horse as well. lol. I had to have a horse and well, my brother was there. (kill 2 birds with one stone). When I got to 16, we were still playing musketeers. (I was a very naive girl) After that, I fantasized about becoming a nun but...I fell pregnant with my first boyfriend. lol.
Excellent work, Angela and Glenn, normalising the skin we live in! Sometimes hard to brave it, but the more I do it the easier it is, as I know that people around me regularly have seen my p before and know it is there now. And of course my family have seen it for years anyway. When the plaques go white and dry looking I just spray on a spot of suncream if Im out and about and don't have my usual moisturiser on me. Sun protection and moisturiser / antidryness all in one 👌👌👌 Hehe!
I hope it all works for you Jayne. It can't be easy. I'm going on about 1 extra spot on my shoulder and here you are with so much worse. I'm so sorry. As you know I'm a coal tar fan and it does help me. I've never used paraffin before but I've read that paraffin soothes your skin? I know it will also dry it out but what moisturizer are you using? Or is it moisturizer mixed with coal tar? Good luck Jayne and keep us updated okay? We are here for you xx
