A little about my P....
Went from none to 95% covered when I was made redundant whilst on maternity leave 10yrs ago 😱
Tried coal tar/ topical steroids/ light treatment and photo chemotherapy (PUVA)....cleared for a few months but it came back worse every time!
Spent a few years hiding inside, wearing jumpers and jeans in the summer not wanting to leave the house...depression, anxiety....
Decided two years ago to try to live with my P and accept it as part of me....limited success, I can wear tshirts and skirts most of the time without any issues day to day but nights out and special occasions I avoid as my anxiety about how I look kicks in.
After nagging my Dr for a food intolerance test and then refusing and being convinced there is something in leaky gut etc I took the bull by the horns and paid for my own test to be done!
So I’m now on gluten free, dairy free and nightshade free eating plan, 4 weeks in, no real difference so far but I am less itchy so small mercies I guess and it’ll take a long time to heal!
So that’s me in a briefish nutshell!
