Mother, Artist, Survivor. Living with and scratching the itch.

To be honest, I don't think food is a trigger for my psoriasis. I've tweaked my diet here and there, tried elimination, and was vegan for a year, until about 6 months ago.
My psoriasis pretty much remained as it was throughout.

I can't afford most of the gluten/wheat/dairy free foods on offer in the supermarkets.
Why do these alternatives have to be so expensive??
I bought a pack of gluten free pasta and I can tell you before I've cooked it - it's going to taste sh**t!

My one, flaring, painful and itchy patch utterly pales in to significance compared to my hot flushes!!!

Recovering from my cold, I've developed tiny pustules on the inside of both my wrists.
Weird how psoriasis can appear in adjacent areas of the body.
Who can tell me why this is so?

I added a teaspoon of turmeric to my daughter's bolognese meat sauce tonight.
It added a very slight heat and piquancy and raised the flavour.
I was thinking of mixing some directly in my salve, to rub in my psor...what do you reckon??

The best way to scratch an itchy back?
A bamboo back scratcher.

I have an itch.
It needs soothing.
I can't scratch it, I wont stop...

Saw a very inspiring article in the Daily Mail Online; Hannah Sillitoe has published a psoriasis diet book - she was a severe sufferer of psoriasis & is now clear.
Look it up if you can,as I can't post the web link here.

Big painful flare up this morning.
That's because last night I slurped on white wine, nibbled some sweets and ate two chocolate eclairs.
There really is no hope for me.

When I'm content, there's no itch or flare.
Been working on my art creations for the Xmas season & for my local community centre's charity event.
It's been a couple of days of creativity, a couple of days of forgetting I have psoriasis.

Travelling almost an hour to the ONLY place where I can buy proper sourdough bread that's been properly made...Waitrose.
I'll be buying their whole shelf of sourdough, literally.
I've especially cleared my freezer to make room for them, lol.

Despite my cold I made my birthday cake.
The chockliest choccy-chocolate cake EVER.
And wine, yes a few glasses to accompany my mega pig-out session tonight.
Because we can't post fotos this is the best I could do:

I have a cold.
Which is why I couldn't smell the Tiger Balm I sleepily smeared on my itchy psor in the middle of the night in the dark, instead of my PurePotion (same texture).
I realised my error when it stung.
But... (see comments)

I've been doing a little research on tooth crowns (of all things) and came across articles about periodontal disease and it's link to psoriasis.
This is a new discovery for me and an interesting concept.
Any views on this?

How has connecting with other psoriasis sufferers in forums such as Flaym affected you?
Has talking with each other helped you feel less isolated and has it inspired you to research some ideas talked about here?

I need a good, substantial substitute for my cravings of Salt 'n Vinegar crisps splashed with Tabasco.
And Maggie Liquid Seasoning (MSG alert!) on everything.
A plate of mixed veg and grilled salmon just doesn't quite cut it.

Soon, I will take a photo of my very photogenic psor on my leg & upload it as a profile pic.
It will either enthral or turn you all off.
Either way, at least I'd have flashed you a look then be done with it.

My touch of psoriatic arthritis in my wrists and fingers is throbbing in reaction to the colder weather today.
Time to swallow back more of those Omega-3's and Glucosamine & Chondroitin supplements!
What do you take so I can consider?

Chomping on my 'Gluten, Wheat and Milk Free' chocolate chip cookies, dunking them in my Green Jasmine tea...
So not satisfied!
