Travelling back from London. Skin is prickly and forearm guttate bit sore. Probably the 3 alcoholic drinks at a wedding yesterday! Had a few psoriasis chats with people. Bonus! Do you tell people about yours in conversation? 🤔

I like to talk to people about ps, just to guage their responses and their awareness. About 95% of people are happy to chat about it, often knowing a family member or a friend that has it. But as with all people, there is that minority that are ignorant towards ps and sometimes their words come out in the wrong way. I have witnessed a few incidents where this has occurred and found myself wandering in to have a word. Being trained as a critical incident stress advisor in the FS helped a great deal.

Its a new sexy app for ps peoples, John. I think you have to wire your toes to your phone, whilst laying in bed in the dark 😂😂😂😂

Haha Glenn. Taking neon colors to a whole new level.
John; Sarah painted her toe nails a neon color to go with the dress. I'm sure it looked great. ;)

I'm sure after a couple of days eating healthy your skin will feel better. Glad you had a good time.
22 Jul 21:01
If people mention it then yes I would. Hope your skin feeling better soon. Hope you had a good time Sarah

I didn't really eat unhealthy but I did dare to have 3 alcoholic drinks in one day, shock horror! my skin hates me. But there we are. Yes the neon nails are still rocking strong!

Glad you had fun Sarah. Yes, probably the alcohol but WTH... Gotta live a little. I never told anyone about my psoriasis. If they asked or were really staring then yes, but never just casually brought it up. Not sure why, just never thought much about it but I also had psoriasis when I was 7 so I lived with it and made damn sure it was not a big part of me as a person.
