...feeling sad Gabriela @gabrielabee34


Can't go out in public anymore. Had a panic attack in the grocery store from people staring at me. A woman nudged her husband while I was standing in line and pointed at me so he would look.
I want to go to sleep and never wake up.

Ok.. That's not good. I want to help you to transform a bit. Suggestion that someone gave me years ago and it was a good start... Don't use the word "can't"... Change it to "won't"... That way you actually get to choose. Worked for me in my life journey. Again, this is only a suggestion.

There are a lot of insensitive assholes in the world.

Hi Gabriela. We have all been on the receiving end of the starers and nudgers and yes, it's horrible but it's just their ignorance showing. Instead of concerning your thoughts on them, think about how you responded to it? What could you have done different to make this horrible situation more bearable? Those type of people will never change,but you can. Stare the idiots out, stand proud and strong and don't let them get to you.🌹🌹❤️

You're not alone Gabriela. Most of us who have P experienced what you have experienced. Just ignore those people because the more you conscious you become to people staring at you, the more stress you'll have, and the more your P become inflamed. Most of them don't have any idea what P is and worse, they're judgmental. So keep you head up Gabriela! We're here for you to support and help each other. 😊

Please dont let it get to you that way Gabriela. I have actually said something to a couple of people when I caught them staring .. something like - lucky its not contagious isnt it! Having P is stressful enough without ignorant people making it worse !

Thank you all for the responses and support. Today has been tougher than most. Had to quit my job at Starbucks when this popped up because my arthritis followed soon after. Just a sad day. I really appreciate knowing there's people out there who know how I feel

Don't say that hon, every problem has a solution

Gabriela - I know you are overwhelmed but start reading everything you can about diet and psoriasis- what if I said it was possible to eliminate your joint pain and improve your skin 60% just by changing your diet? - it's possible - I did it. I know that everyone is different but it's certainly worth a try!!!
