Every time a member of my family goes to the shop I jokingly say "buy me something"! Needless to say only my husband will do that. Lol
The squeaky wheel gets the oil 🛢 our voices can only be falling on deaf ears I guess it's not a problem unless it's your own drug companies only see profit not problems doctors treat only symptoms they need to treat a person personally and completely and not every three months they should get paid for results not per the minute...rant over..
First thing is society needs to understand what it is, not look down on people with it as if it is a contagious disease. Money needs put into to a nationwide advertisement scheme broadcasting it out on TV. Prime times so as many people see it, also when I was younger thought of going round schools to advertise it. Yes the ignorance of people is too much at times, the looks ones get & words on the tip of your tongue. Be positive even in your worst days, keep your chin up.
That's perfectly said Lindakay. Hell no. We are not victims. We are survivors and that means more. Having Psoriasis makes us strong. There is a quote that reads " I am not a big fan of being a victim. I don't like getting beaten up" and this is what others should know about us. Loved it thank you.
Lol - Would love to see you giving the T's away to the Derm's staff.
You know something I dislike the new commercial for a certain Medication that helps relieve The Big P..I actually feel it makes all P people look like victims we are not victims we have Psorasis nothing more ,nothing less and we cope daily,we don't feel sorry for ourselves we are people who have a wonderful story to tell and we are of value...that whole commercial thing angers me..I wish Medical and Nursing Schools covered Integumentary systems much better. I wish they'd include folks like us in those teaching Moments. I think we should not be afraid of how we appear to others and answer Honestly and let folks know what we have isn't contagious. What we have can't be cured,Its an Autoimmune disorder. WE need to seek any opportunity to share with others who Don't have The P.
I don't know Flaym...All auto immune disorders need to be brought into the open. There are so many people who suffer in silence. Forever feeling exhausted and sick. Too many people who can't be cured. But if the world is made more aware of what these diseases are then there will be understanding and support. P is visible so that scares people off. The only time I've seen it on tv is on the doctors. And that was for only 2 minutes. And who watches that late at night?
