...feeling happy Sarah @sarahuk

Secrets, looks, exercise

Saw a lady at the pool today with psoriasis, and wanted to shout "hey psister!!! let's talk about psoriasis!". I didn't talk to her, but felt a subtle presence of psisterhood the whole time we were in the pool. Psoriasisters (and brothers) unite 👊

Oh fine, you all get a cool name and we get boring old brother. Now I'm psissed off :)

Linda @justicejones

Yes in supporting each other we make more bareable, when we see someone go out there regardless it gives us courage to do more.

After the pool exfoliates you got a date with a lemon 🍋 this is a psoriasis tag team...

Ace @chris1623

You guys go in the pool. Is it chlorine or salt water pool?

Mishlyn @mishlyn

You should one of these days Sarah, if you see her again! I bet you both felt a little more comfortable having each other there :)

Lou @lou60

I know my P reacts well with the chlorine. I know the docs have said it should make it worse but mine is much better in the Sun.

Mishlyn @mishlyn

Mine reacts good with chlorine too, I've never been to a salt pool before

Haha,thats funny Sarah,p sister , its good that people dont mind showing their flakes,i dont mind if its spots but patches i couldnt,hat off to you and others that can do that, you know i had a bad experience in childhood from a teacher when i was 10 years old,that sticks with me like psoriasis and i cant shake it off :)

anthony @anthony10

we have a salt pool in our complex when i have the time to get in it does seem to ease my elbows and removes the dry skin but few days later its all the same again..

Sarah @sarahuk

Yes I should talk to her next time! I think she might be there again next week, she was with her daughter and grandchild. Yes Ace, this is a chlorine pool I go to. I would so much prefer it to be a salt pool! I am going to Italy in a few weeks and there is a sulfur spring there which is meant to be amazing for skin conditions. Will have to get up there for a soak!

john,Hulk @chewbacca

Have a great time in Italy when you go Sarah :)

This pic is my Italian chopper moped from 1973 ,i finished /restored it years ago in 2003, same year my arthritis started,it took 5 years to get parts and make them also from scrap but sadly had to sell it in 2011, it was sad day but couldnt keep it as i move around too much and storage would be pricey :)
