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??
For me its The Sun ,lately though I am doing this Callogen protein shake and for the most part a Keto diet..I have removed all corn based products and wheat trying to stay Glutten free too for the most part..now this doesn't mean I never slip because I do and then you can just set your clocks by how long I head back into a flare and quickly back to being depressed about that Flare ...I also have fewer Flakes (Happy Dance here just soak it up) and less itching..I also learned early on here that we all have totally different reactions so what might work for me may not work for you..I increased Fruit intake,Veggies...and alternatives to Flour..such as Almond,Coconut and quinoa flours...I still drink full fat milk and have sour cream and cottage chees..and cheese..if my skin flares with Cheese then I will just scream however I can still be a cheese lover on my new changes yeah..I send much love to all and Be Blessed Precious People :>)
Hi Chel I have a nightly wrap of my feet and hands..and a viscuss jel w/steroids in it I apply the crème wrap my feet with saran wrap put socks over that to keep the wrap in place I use Vinyl store bought gloves so I can also encase my hands in the same crème I do that every single night and sometimes during the day..I soak in Epsom salts three times a week as well and now I am also doing Collagen shakes I will let you know how I am doing..I am seeing the other areas of my body healing I also use CBD oils and an amended form of Keto eating...its working my body is healing Hugs Precious
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
