I love this post Jacqueline. Great visual way to outline it! I guess the immune system issues are in there too at the very bottom of that iceberg for me

I had more to add, that you guys have mentioned, but I was limited with the number of characters I could use, as you know.
Yes, the visual impact of an iceberg is a great analogy to show just how 'deep' this condition is, and how there is far more to psoriasis than just the 'bad skin' that people without this condition can see.

That's very true Jacqueline and quite thought provoking to think that the part of the population that don't have it only see the skin condition but do not realise what may "Lie under the surface" for the person they are looking at which can be mildly irritating to one person and the end of the world for another....with exactly the same degree of P...It really does make you think.

You are so right Jacqueline. There is far more to P, than just bad skin. I honestly think that the deep dark emotions that come with life living with P are part of the reason for it not healing..or getting worse. We are putting too many negative emotions into our bodies. One of the most profound statements I have ever read was that "Dis Ease causes Disease." It comes from Louise Hay's book, *You Can Heal Your Life* Her book changed my life living with P. I will be forever grateful!!
My wish is that one day the treatment of P will include support for our emotional health as well.

This had been a very good Post and the comments good too.
P is such a complex disease that affects each of us differently. One thing we all share is the dreaded skin rash on the outside.
Mishlyn you are a star 🌟
Here's to a speedy recovery my P Family and Friends, love and hugs ❤️🌹
