Psoriasis is horrible in old age..wondering what Pharmaceutical company will ever help me buy the meds that would help me attain some form of quality of life??
There are all kinds of Good Feet stores that make inserts to help you Debbie if your not close to one find one on the internet..12 hours on the floor good God Babe get off your feet..I do homecare now because I could no longer take my hours and be Unit Coordinater any longer..so sweet cheeks find "The Good Feet" store closest to you and while I don't think it has anything at all to do with Psorasis I have long ago stopped assuming anything about this entire process have a great week Miss Debbie and many Blessings on Ye and Fee :>)
You know I feel so relaxed when I am here..of course we actually can't see each other but here I feel at least everyone knows what I am feeling when I flare..people listen with their hearts here everywhere else they just don't have the time...so I feel comfortable talking about everything I am experiencing even if I am in full on flare,in pain and a self pitying blob at the moment,I am not now but trust me I have been..it takes courage every single day to be honest..glad we are all here..hugs everyone my flare is clearing up thank God I mean that sincerely :>)
I am not bi-polar but I have had depression w/ psoriasis...and sometimes I almost feel as if I live in a hole in the wall and see no way out...then without medication I usually find my barings and start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel..Frankly I get more Seasonal depression b/c my Psorasis seems to flare right around the early winter months late October until about December this last year but I have never experience the highs bi-polar people get or the compulsive behaviors nope once again I am not the winner its just full on depression with occasional rain..love ya darlin'
Rosey we all fall down Babe..my body is racked in pain daily I often wonder why I pull my pants on..why shower..why get out of bed..I try isn't working..I try is sometimes harder than doing but we DO get up WE Do move forward..my feet and hands don't look like yours..I can't wear acrylic nails or any nails my toe nails are melted off from the creames and the wrapping I must do to help me live with Psorasis..my body is almost 70% covered in scales and flakes most days its bothersome I push through and you will too Can I say How proud I am to know you,I am maybe alone we can't make it but together we do it one day at a time...Keep sharing Rosey keep sharing and caring about Our Autoimmune Disease we all wish to our cores we didn't have it and there was a cure but its us its who we are...Hugs Precious I send much love May you be blessed always as you have Blessed others
Oh my Hands are normal looking now but I wear those gloves if my fingers and palms begin to have the slightest itch it moves to the back of my hands if I don't do treatments with gloves too my hands used to look like little twigs Ang I know exactly what you mean when you say "A Thousand Little cuts" and the pain its depressing...and I was depressed before I came to Flayn...I had my first belly laugh here you have no idea how my outlook changed as a result of being around others who have P as well ..my body was over 70% when I first came here and I was actually crawling to go to the bathroom if I could I would wrap my entire body some nights with saran wrap...:>) hugs Ang It gets Better really it does hey and Welcome to Flaym sweet cheeks
Ang this is for you sweetheart,I wear Vinyl gloves at night I wrap my Feet in Plastic Saran wrap I have used Vicks salve and wrapped when I was really without any steroid cremes...please go out and buy a cheap box of any plastic gloves you can find...this works for me I also used to apply anti bacterial salve to my cuts and cracks so they would heal...if you have a steroid crème apply it then wrap those feet apply crème to hands and put on gloves I have worn gloves up to 3 months but they helped me find much needed relief Don't use cotton gloves only vinyl or latex whichever your not allergic to for me I can wear either some folks can't wear latex...no powder in the gloves none just plain plastic gloves...wear them for as long as you need them...best results for my P if my hands flare hope that helps you Ang
My Mom had it and my Alkie Uncle I Loved him so much miss him everyday as I do my Mom. I had it off and on but my own didn't get worse until I passed through the Portal to old age. Then its like it came screaming down the lane at me like a Freddie Kruger..and has been a nightmare ever since..Winters are awful for me as well I keep asking about the Keto Diet because some one said their skin problem went completely away and now as I sit here reading this I realise I AM still holding out Hope for a cure dash it all..steroid cremes have kept the itching at bay and one oral pill helps hold back the tide some..but have found incredible info in the topics and themes here I love this site hope all are well...the pain is horrible some days cannot wait until spring and summer Hugs all Be Blessed. Going to Sun my Lizard parts Love ya all
wish I could post my before and after photos of what Pustulate Psorasis does to my extremities cracked,bloody ,swollen and red and itchy wish I could show the Bark they become when I am in Flare mode..with of course the mounting determination to fix it all I will never be cured but I have gained some control how this effects my thinking..the depression that ensues and how you all have helped me reconstruct some way to heal what is broken I adore you all so much for being with me in this Journey May God Bless you all a thousand fold :>) I am grateful
