...feeling frustrated Mary @mary1979


I never talk about having psoriasis. I don’t think people understand how upset you can get about dealing with having it.

Hi Mary, it can be hard indeed, talking to people who have no clue what it can be like at times. Great to see you found us here. Since I have joined I have gained confidence when talking with others about my skin. I hope it can be the same for you! It is so great to be able to connect with people who understand. Welcome to Flaym!

I normally don’t care about it until someone says something to me then I’ll be paranoid for a bit but I get over it again I don’t like summer I can’t cope with being hot so I take the staring and wear what I want over being roasted alive 😂

Hi Mary yes I've been through that for over 40 years never being able to wear short sleeve shirts or short pants but at last I've found a mixture that I've been working on for years that help 10% coaltar in emulsifying ointment in 500 mg tub now I walk basically just with short pants day and night ask ur chemist to mix it for you

Hope that can change now that you're at Flaym, Mary! It's all we talk about ☺️ Welcome!

I’m also quite used to not talking about it and even ignoring it best I can (covering up loads mainly) but with recent flare ups it’s geting harder. Hopefully I can have it under control by summer 💪

Sarah @sarahuk

That's the spirit, Camila!

I feel guilty because I don’t think I am as bad as some as you guys. But the last 2 days have really been bad because it’s my eyes and unlike my body and scalp I can’t hide it
