Hello Fahd, well my mother wasnt and hasnt been around since i was 6 months old,so she never said not to scratch, well she must had been flaking and scratching any way as she had psoriasis also she is the one responsible for myself having it , maybe she wanted to keep the flakes in the family :) NO Fahd, its usually everyone else that has something wrong with them :) well we are all friends here,well cyber friends, better than no friends at all, sorry you feel alone Fahd, i wish you well

That is sad and I am sorry Fahd. There is nothing wrong with you. You can't help having Psoriasis. Your mother and wife of 10 years should know that. They should learn to make peace with you having P. They should accept your condition and support you. You have as much right as them to walk with a shirt without long sleeves. We need our family's support. Without it, we will feel like an outcast and it will speed on depression. Try to make friends Fahd, you will be surprised to see how many people won't judge you. :)

True John. We have wonderful people here on Flaym and that is the best friendship we can have. Support. Fahd I hope everything gets better for you and like John said don't let others get you down.

Ai Jinger. It's their loss. Not yours. You still with your fiance? All 3 my exe's had no problem in sharing a bed with me. We even made fun of all the flakes. lol. The one actually dried out his skin for days to see if he could flake more than I do. It was some sort of competition. Guess who won? ME! . They were very considerate. You are NOT a leopard. You are a beautiful woman with a beautiful soul and should those people not see it, then it's time for you to move on. I'm sorry. I might sound blunt in this way but why should you be unhappy because of their ignorance. You have a life too and you should live it.

Thanks guy's he moved to another need because he said The scratching was to much. But the cream makes them worse and the other knocks me out I have a 4 year old I can't just be. Knocked out. I have Guttate psoriasis so it looks like blisters and sores everywhere
06 Jun 12:46
I'm so sorry Jinger. Someone else will come a long. Someone who will love you for who you are inside out. With kids, one has to be careful with what kind of meds you take. I'm not experienced with Guttate P but Sarah has informed me about it. Her advice to others was excellent. Don't worry. Everything will be okay. Just stay positive. :)

Argh Fahd, that is so hard to feel rejected by your own family. I had a recent experience with my mum which I posted about on here too where she was telling me how sore my skin looks, even though I think it looks pretty good right now! I think the more confidence you project about your skin, the more people adopt your confidence and see your skin as less of an issue... I think also that most people on Earth have some form of cocktail of health issues. It can be any of a million things! Like someone will have a tendency towards stomach issues or asthma or hayfever or heart problems or deficiencies or mental health tendencies etc etc... It's just with us, ours is our skin, and maybe other stuff too! I'll bet your mother and wife have some kind of issue of their own and are not free to judge us for ours. It's all much of a muchness in many ways! Jinger, so sorry to hear this about your guttate psoriasis too. I am very happy to message about guttate p if you would like to chat.
