Coping, treatment, healthcare system

As someone who lives with a rare disease, people often have a very different perception of how I think, feel, and live each day of my life. While I have an illness, I am NOT my illness. It is merely a part of me.

An important part that has defined who I have chosen to be, the kind of life I have chosen to live, and the kind of mindset I choose to live by. Change your mindset and you will see the change it has on your body too. :)

I can imagine that it would be easy to let your illness rule your life and blame everything that goes wrong on it, but you seem to have the right attitude towards it.

Agree Candice,we suffer because we're desperate when bad,but affordability beyond our means,so we change and listen to ppl here and start natural as well as what we can afford,thers alot we can do beyond drs/ dermatologists,if we are willing,hope you find solutions that was the pain and skin
