...feeling alone Gabriela @gabrielabee34


I feel so alone. My second flare up of plaque psoriasis at 23 because a coworker came to work with strep throat. Week 2 of this flare up, Major stress, developed a severe ear infection and in constant discomfort and pain. I can't do it anymore.

Hey Gabriela. You're not alone!!! I have severe plaque psoriasis as well. You can get through this. Take care of that infection, trust me it will pass. Once it does, focus on the flare up. You're strong!

Thank you Raymond. Your words have more impact than you can even imagine. It's just so difficult right now. I feel like it's one thing after another and this is the worst outbreak I've ever had. Only had one before this one when I was 16 and it was nowhere as severe. People stare at me. It's all over my face. I feel so helpless.

Oh Gabriela, you are so not alone. This is a great site that will give you lots of tools... I bet you will feel quite different soon, bipolar or not... This site will inspire you, give you lots of suggestions, make you laugh or at least smile. I love it here!

We know what you're going through. Just try to relieve some of your stress somehow as you know that makes things worse. I had a terrible sun burn once and as a result i had the worst flare up of my life. Was covered everywhere. I know how you feel. Try to keep your head up! This is temporary.
