I fall in love with pens. And paper. Also, I'm a huge FANGIRL of almost everything awesome. From BBC Sherlock to Star Wars. I've had Psoriasis since I was 6. Now I'm 16.
Ikr! He was a new coach and he was staring so awkwardly at me in my swimming costume and then he told me to go change and that I should never come for swimming until I had a doctor's note saying it was an non-contagious disease...but that incident shook me so badly that I didn't ever bother going again. But I also remember my friends running to the changing rooms and telling me to ignore him and step into the pool, swearing at him the whole time. I doubt they remember it now but I felt so happy at that moment.
The funny thing is...I don't even remember. I was 6 when I was diagnosed and since then I've been covered with flakes and if not that then the scars. The dermatologists say that Psoriasis leaves no scars...but it did and I can't wear shorts or a dress or anything that reveals my legs. And I was kicked out of swimming classes in 4th grade. So now, I'm covered in scars and I have no fricking idea how to swim.
