Psoriasising since 1997...

If you could be granted a wish to know one thing you don't already know about psoriasis, what would it be? For me... I'd like to know why it chooses the areas it does when it pops up on the skin 😶😶😶

Does anyone else have experience of a kind of pimply scalp flare? Feels like mega itchy sporadic very tiny pimples rather than spread out patches...This is a new type of flare for me in 21 years of scalp psoriasis 😮

Burn, itch, bubble, sting, hurt, flake, scratch, scrape, rub, sigh. This cycle! Our lives. So glad that there is compassion and understanding here amongst Flaym friends. Some days are really hard, and I'm glad we get through them together 💕💕💕

Today my head feels like it's had a cheese grater to it... 😭 Itching, burning, flaking. It is laughing in the face of my efforts! Wonder what on earth is setting it off now?! Can't be diet (strict AIP). Something else... Trying not to scratch! 😧

Does anyone experience increased flares or itching according to hormone patterns? I'm noticing from my diary that I get increased itching at certain times... 😣

Psoriasis mystery solved! The patch at the top of my bum around 3 years ago was actually inverse psoriasis. Didn't know it at the time! Have you ever realised something new about your psoriasis retrospectively? Do share your psoriasis mysteries! 💫

Wearing a black cardigan still fills me with terror. But I love my black cardigan! In fact, any cardigan 😄 So it's on. Flakes or no flakes. I expect to have a cricked neck later from all the shoulder-checking! 😮

Autoimmune curry night! Bubbling on the hob is an Autoimmune Protocol compliant lamb curry. Lamb, sweet potato, courgette, swede, onion fried in turmeric, cinnamon and ginger, with thick coconut milk and fish sauce. Cauliflower rice too... 🍠🍖🍛

When you change stuff in your psoriasis self-treatment, do you seek advice from your doctor? Or do you inform them in any way? The advice always says to keep your doctor informed of changes and I'm wondering if I should be doing that...

Yay! Found an Aveeno sale and stocked up enough for a good few months. Woop! Let that oatmeal soak in baby! 💦💦💦 Also bought some whole fish and lamb heart and liver - very nutrient dense and very Autoimmune Protocol! Good shopping day today 👌👌👌

I've got a little surface peeling on my elbows. I think it looks my psoriasis is shuddering it's way out of my skin, with no inflammation underneath to take it's place! Is this what healing looks like? I sure hope it is! 👍👍👍

Found a pretty much Autoimmune protocol compliant meal at a chain pub for £6.55! That's a revelation as eating out is tough...

Latest measure of an improvement in the condition of my psoriasis. I took off the most chafy pair of drainpipe jeans yesterday, and no flakes inside the knees! That is a massive win! How do you measure improvements in your psoriasis everyone?

Went to see The Greatest Showman film today. Minority people, singing loud! "I'm not scared to be seen, I make no apology, this is me". That's a possible psoriasis anthem isn't it?! What else could be good psoriasis anthems? We could make an album 😎

AutoImmune Protocol lifestyle is mega hard for my loved ones to understand! Family are trying so hard to support me which I so appreciate 💖 But AIP is strict, and quite alien to so many people! 👽👽👽

In my regular newspaper this week there is an article about psoriasis! First I've ever seen. It's about cost of psoriasis medications to the UK NHS. I realise I have no clue how much the treatments I have used cost the UK NHS! 😮😮😮

The end of my last bottle of Aveeno is nigh! And none on sale! Do effective creams always have to be expensive? A trip to the shops is needed. CANNOT be without it! 😯😯😯

Thought I'd spotted some definite flaking coming from my general direction today whilst out and about. Was about to get out the moisturiser from in the car, only to realise that it was actual snowflakes falling from the sky! ☃️☃️☃️

Does fingernail pitting come and go? A few of mine started to go pitted last year and I was watching them like a hawk. Now they don't look pitted but a different finger is looking pitted worse than the others did...What is going on?!

Really getting in to the AutoImmune Protocol diet now after a week. Skin very calm! Feeling the inflammation levels coming down. Planning my shopping for next week...meat, fish, veg only. Nothing else. Awesome looking natural food! Love it 🍏🍈🍠🍗
