I'm most happy when I'm plucking weeds in my gardens. I'm a sun worshiper. I've had psoriasis since I was born and usually it's mild unless stressed.
Michelle we have four seasons in Canada! Our summers are from June to September and we can get up to 40 degrees C! Usually July and August are the hottest months. May and October are also usually lovely, mild months. The dreaded winter is from December to March but we do lots of activities outside such as chop our wood from our forest, snowshoe, take long walks in the forest... and drink wine! (Just me that last bit!). Right now I’m gardening all day. We grow our potatoes for the whole year plus zillions of tomatoes (125 plants this year!), beans, peas, carrots, cucumbers, melons, zucchini, kohlrabi, lettuce... so keeping very busy! What are you up to other than drinking?!
I don’t have too much confidence in doctors. I learned a long time ago that most of them are pretty useless. I remember going to a dermatologist for my psoriasis and telling him some of the natural things I was doing that were really helping; he had zero interest. They’re only good for writing prescriptions, and pills for the most part only camouflage a symptom and don’t solve the problem. You’ll get better John. You’re determined.
It sounds like you try so hard to be healthy John. It must be frustrating. For me my physical and mental health depends a lot on the sun. Even when it’s not very hot, I try to stay outside in the sun as often as possible. With all the stress these days, the best times of the day is when I’m outside gardening. I truly wish you renewed good health.
Sorry to hear that Sarah. Stress is very bad for psoriasis. I’m able to get out and sit in the sun these days so my psoriasis is ok but my stomache hurts all the time and I don’t know what to eat anymore. I haven’t yet figured out how to be more zen. Hope the world gets better soon and we all feel more at ease.
