Coping, parenting, friends & family
I have had this for so many years , my biggest fear is my daughter getting it.
I never want her to have to deal with this

Margaret, I’m with you on this. And not just with my kids but now my grandkids. My only comfort is that my diet changes have helped my case so if they get it there is something they can try instead of just creams that had no positive effect on my p at all.

Hi Margaret! You have just basically tapped in to my biggest worry about psoriasis too. I'm sure loads of us worry about this. I saw a post somewhere (not Flaym!) the other week that said people with psoriasis shouldn't be allowed to have children. That is quite upsetting in many ways! I do worry for my boys. But then if I wasn't worrying about psoriasis for them, I'd be worrying about the 10000001 other things there are to worry about anyway 😏

That is also a fear of mine. Always making sure they moisturize good in the winter and on the look out for any skin changes. Sarah, I cannot believe that article---my goodness. I would love to put my thoughts on that post!! grrrrr......

Hi Margaret. I was scared too that both my daughters might get it as well. I was so cautious in what I used on them, soap, shampoo, medication etc, but I realized that, I can't take away their freedom of choice and them just being a child. They loved the bubble baths, different kinds of hand lotions, perfume, oh...you know everything a little girls loves and I just left it. I made sure they knew that I was there for them. I taught them about P and today they basically know more about it than I do. They are 25 and 23 yrs old, and so far no indication of a spot, but I pray to God they don't get it. Should they get it, they will be strong enough to handle it. Don't worry about your girl, teach her from young what it is and let her become wise and understanding towards the condition.

Sarah, I am really highly upset about that article you read about us P sufferers should not have children. I'M really...REALLY UPSET. Michelle, I would love to get my ankles around his neck and show him some L..Flakes. Such judgmental people makes me sick and I would love to have a say in that article as well. People like that, bring out the worst in me and I have to admit, I can become like the baby from 'Incedibles 2' 😈.

I know Michelle, I was honestly upset by it too. Everyone who saw it and commented were absolutely outraged, as I was too.

i think its just a choice a choice for everyone to have children whether one has a condition or not, main thing i think, if you love your children they will love you back,my childhood wasnt like that at all(no violins please haha) my mother fled when i was 6 months ,my parents did go to court as she was considered an unfit mother i believe?my dad won me so to speak but i heard he was going to put me in a foster home or something like that? never know who to believe, i was little child when i heard this, my grandfather did say my mother wasnt good though he didnt know my second step mother wasnt good either in my opinion so there wasnt any love i can say , if one gives love
that means more than a skin condition being passed to their children, in my opinion :)

I agree John. Love means more than a skin condition. You turned out to be a great guy and I know you would never turn you back on your child/ren should they have a medical condition. We know what it is to suffer. I know what it is to not have love from a father, but that doesn't bother me because I am not here to get people's approval. Us all want to fit in somewhere and those who do not want to be a part of our lives, good riddance. People with a big mouth like that guy (Sarah's story) should go back to school. I love my children so much and like you said, more than just a skin condition are being passed to children.
