07 Jun 06:46
Well Michelle, 3 days of hell well having a good time :) if i feel symptoms over the weekend and next week, i know within a week or a bit more i reckon, it will start healing once i stop the toxic foods etc , my skin could be good who knows? the arthritis might give me a few aches but, nothing bad i dont think,i am taking good food aswell so wont be all bad and i will drink my 2 litres of filtered water a day as usual thank you, :)
07 Jun 06:51
You will be ok. Just enjoy and don't think about the bad food you're eating. What the brain don't recognize, won't hurt the body. Tell yourself while having that beer, it's a bottle of water. lol
07 Jun 06:55
Haha, its good water and gets you drunk :) yes i will thank you Michelle :)

Have a great time John! Hope all goes well! Did you pack some Lemon? 😉😉😃
08 Jun 06:27
Lets hope he did...:)
10 Jun 14:28
I did Michelle, i gave myself a squirt of it though some friends looked at me odd but, didnt say a word ,got a little toasted on face and my knees by the sun,a lot of bad eating and drinking, it was nice though,couple of friends were interested on what i had to say about diet and psoriasis, my friends girlfriend has decided to cut out nightshade foods my friend has said , dont know how she will go with that, so thats something :)
11 Jun 06:05
Hope you have something for the sun burn John as it will affect your P? It's good to know that you have friends whom is interested in your life and what you do to make it better. Good influence you have on their girlfriends I see lol. Does she have P as well?
11 Jun 06:21
Only on her scalp Michelle though i have never seen any evidence of it on her,no scalp flaking etc though my friend says he sees it obviously as he lives with her ,she didnt go camping with us this time , maybe next time she will come,she is a bit hard work though for him generally , shes okay thanks ,well no difference in my skin as yet Michelle, :)
11 Jun 06:53
Yes your friend will know and does he have P as well? I know what it is to go away for a weekend/week and take someone with you whom is hard work. Its tiring.
11 Jun 06:58
No, his girlfriend has arthritis in one knee, she had arthritis in that knee before psoriasis of the scalp,my closer friend has psoriasis also and mild again,i consider myself mild and a doc thought that, i have it the worst compared to these people i know as i get in anywhere ,the face on my bad boy etc, these people dont get it there, yes his girlfriend is always depressed for what ever reason, i get on okay with her though,i couldnt deal with that hard work no way :)
11 Jun 07:12
lol. the pleasures of being in relationship. Psoriasis in the knee must be aweful and sore. I can imagine. I have mild P now too. I must be doing something right. I remember when I was covered in P when I was 20 and 28, it was the most terrible depressing time of my life. When my P disappeared It only left the ones on my ankles and I've been trying to get rid of it. Every year I will get a small flare of P but only during winter. I went to the chemist yesterday and they gave me 20% stronger coal tar and I can already see the difference on my foot where I got the new spots. I'm lucky to have it mild.
11 Jun 07:54
Thats good Michelle,glad its not bad these days, yes i know what its like to have it bad though that was a long time ago, yes why i dont like relationships really, not ones that tie you anyway :)i prefer to be in my own flakey world, who knows though, i maybe selfish not to share my flakes with someone in time :)
17 Jun 14:03
Update on toxin portal patch, still looks good and healing. maybe the toxins are working out another way to get out ?i will keep an eye :)
