...feeling afraid Melanie @nela

Travel

Heading to Florida Keys this weekend and I’m concerned about my scalp p. And the rest of my body. Going to snorkel and am afraid that I’ll be itching afterwards. I can see it now, people will look at me that I’m contagious or something.

Don't let your P hold you back Melanie. Decide to be determined. Forget about the people. Clear your mind. Decide to fight like a tiger. I know what you are going to think "But what if I feel hopeless, un-motivated, and unsure of how to proceed by enjoying my life?" Proverbs 24:10 cautions us, “If you are slack in the day of distress, your strength is limited” - True words right? Don't limit your inner strength. Let it all shine out. Like John and Chris said. You got to have a life and don't let your P or people limit you to have just that.

Enjoy, Melanie! My scalp never feels better than when I'm down at the beach - sun and salt water! (And the truth is, people are generally too concerned about themselves to worry overmuch about you. Live your life!)

Thanks! I do worry when I’m in public and my problem is that I’m very self conscious. Sometimes I feel like I’m limited to do things because of my condition. I do appreciate the encourage and just say, the hell with it! 😆

If you can thats great Melanie, i am a coward to show any flakes , respect to you and those that can,most of us are very conscious, i always have been since little child ,respect to you and enjoy :)

Ah, John! You have only one life to live. Why allow others to dictate where and how you will enjoy it? When you get to be my age, (68 this month), you understand that people are far more concerned about themselves than anyone else around. It's freeing - and a whole lot less stressful - to just be myself, dressing as I wish, and engaging in the activities that bring me joy. Why not try that when you're on vacation? Let freedom ring!!!! (I'm celebrating July 4th early.) 🎇🎆🎇

Thanks Ava, yes i have always been this way, its okay,didnt help much 2 winters ago with people looking like they felt sick on what they saw, i did shrug and tell them what it was, best not to show weakness,also i did go topless in Tenerife, people did look but, i was hidden/undercover with a brolly hat and dark shades, it could be worse i know thank you :)

Is this salt water snorkelling Melanie? Salt water is great for my p, scalp and all! I'd take any time I could get in the sea as quick as a flash...Hope its the same for you!

Yes we’re heading down to the Florida Keys, key largo to be exact. I heard they have amazing fish to see, reefs and so forth. Looking forward 😀

Have a wonderful time Melanie! It sure can be hard when it comes to showing out skin. Try to be in the moment and enjoy what you are doing. Have you tried lemon in your skin? it really has helped me with skin build up and redness.
I hope the sea treats you well!! Enjoy & Remember.. Those who matter don't mind..and those who mind don't matter ❤
