When someone looks at you funny because of your Psoriasis.
Turn round and say,
" I know it's awful isn't it, and i was told the leprosy had been cured at the colony, any chance of a Snog/kiss

Spent all day waiting for new meds, it was a no show, and a shite b/s excuse. i sometimes think because your disabled, people think you don't have a life, have nothing to do, than watch four walls, flicking snot at them, as your only distraction.

My wife said, "would you like cornflakes or Frosted flakes for breakfast" i replied "it's ok i'll just stick to the skin Flakes" quickly she replied "is that with milk or cream, as in steroid cream" oh the joys of Psoriasis. LOL.

had a letter today of joint and skin specialist, about four pages long, I skimmed through it and thought tell me something I don't know, but i'm optimistic. remember the stranglers and better watch out for the skindeep, nowt to do with p, great song.

The problem with P, is it varies so much. A remedy that may work for one may not for another. There simply is no simple answer, just Trial and Error. All ppl do on here is try to give the best advice they can and suggest various options available. xx

Life is about perspective, as a person with psoriatic arthritis, I've known pain, frustration, etc, and at times,you feel sorry for yourself.
Then you look at a child with cancer, lost limbs, broken frail bodies and you think MY pain is nothing.

Well finally caught up with sleep, after a week plus of little sleep, slept a solid 18 hours pretty much right through.

Tired beyond belief up since 1pm yesterday, had about 3 hours sleep the night before, not slept since 1pm yesterday, Scratch scratch scratch, Did the creator of Itchy and Scratchy (from the Simpsons) suffer from psoriasis, Just a thought. SCRATCH.

TIME TO SMILE, just smile, remember a happy memory, or a joke even if it's a dirty one, look around and look for the positives in your life, it might be your child, grandchild, partner etc , it might just be that bar of chocolate in the fridge, SMILE

Reading the posts lately, it seems many are having flare ups, mine is a bad as it's been for years, i'm lucky though it rarely appears on my face, but my back, backside and legs are red raw, just wondering is it because it's winter and little sun.

If household dust consists predominantly of dead skin, does this mean Dusty Springfield was a closet psoriasis sufferer or did Ted rogers know something about Dusty bin that he kept a secret. Some of the thoughts I have when I can't sleep. SCRATCH.
04 Feb 15:17
Sayings all psoriasis sufferers should use, 1 "Give me some skin man",
2 "You scratch my back, and i'll scratch yours"
3 "I love you to bits and pieces"
Please feel free to come up with your own little slogans and jokes to keep us all smiling.

Try to see the lighter side of having a condition like psoriasis. Think. "Every day is like Christmas day, because it's always snowing in my house" and we are the only people who can instantly lose a pound in weight just by having a good scratch.

Just a bit of advice, when the itch is driving you crazy , use a soft brush, much better than a back scratcher and easier to use, also to aid build up in scalp, wet hair thoroughly and use a nit comb to take away excess skin, hope this helps.

I suffer badly from this have done for 15 years, there are drugs out there that can help massively, but may eventually over time lose there effectiveness. My advice is never give up, push your doctors/specialists for the best treatments available.
