Looks, coping, healthcare system
I've never seen another Flaker in my shopping centre until an hour ago. He was trying to cover his hands with his long sleeves.

Went up to him and told him not to cover it as it is part of us. He looked at me surprisingly and asked how did I know. I told him I have P. Showed him my legs. Well, I made a friend. We are so scared that people might see our P that we forget that we are part of this world and we have the right to NOT be self conscious.

Well done Michelle I'm sure he appreciated meeting a fellow P person.

Thank you Bev. He asked if we could meet by the way I was talking to him. I think he might be confuse and lonely with this but that is why we are here. To help each other right? Xx

The saddest thing was him trying to still cover his P from me. That was so sad as I knew this man has no self confidence, no nothing. He looked empty if you know what I mean? I can't see people suffering and my heart just went like down. So sad

That's really kind that you tried to reassure him. Hopefully meeting you will boost his confidence 💗

So nice Michelle, I am sure it made him feel better in himself talking to you :),I have spoke to many people with psoriasis and they do feel better about it when i tell them i have it though they look at me and think, you got psoriasis hmmmm? , then i show it , lift up the top and show the flakes ,at least they do not feel alone,these people usually have it worse than me though, A couple of friends of mine its not visible on them so i look like i got it bad compared to them for which mine isnt bad, i know what its like to have it like bad years ago :)

Ahh Michelle that is so sad. Thank you for encouraging him, we will never know how our acts of kindness, big and small, mean to someone. And I am sure it meant a lot to him. Well done

You should not cover your Psoriasis - sunlight is one of the best cures!
