Itch, coping, healthcare system
Hi My lovely Flaymers. Hope you are all well? Weekend is here! With this new company I work for, they have a lot of meetings. With every meeting there is food. If I have to keep munching, I might either gain weight or be covered in P soon.

How many of you are in the same situation at work or elsewhere where you don't have a choice in dietary selection?
07 Dec 11:26
We don't have meetings but once a month,used to be fortnightly,cheeses dips ,biscuits,cake,as I haven't eaten since brekky and meetings are afternoons yep I nibble a bit lol ,what can you do got to be social lol
07 Dec 11:29
Guess you have to restrain yourself or suggest to management at least one healthy alternative,or some co workers bring their own food to snack on

You're right Rosey. They should have a dietary requirement list in place. I'll have to speak to them I guess. We have meetings every single day and so far I haven't had any of the food they cater but, I looooooooove sweetcorn samoosas. John, you look great. You don't need to lose any weight. I'm sure your special lady loves the way you look. Luckily I don't have a sweet tooth so I'm okay. :)

Why thank you Michelle,you look great too :)My head looks a bit boney hear i think,a bit drawn in my face? yes i have sweet tooth, i battle with it quite a lot but i have the will to say nooooo,now and again yes ,, Thank you :):)

That's difficult when you have it sitting in front of you Michelle. I think you must definitely speak to whom ever arranges the food to bring in some healthy food d well. You can give her some great ideas. Stay strong my friend

I have said it before, but my help for Psoriasis is pure coconut oil spread all over my body.
Recently, I found a place which sells it for approximately £2, so I have filled my cupboard.
Give it a go AND YOU WILL ALSO SMELL SCRUMPTIOUS!

Bloody oily stuff,have changed to hemp oil bit I mix it with coconut oil ,not sure if it's working yet
10 Dec 09:49
Will definitely speak to them Bev. Luckily am I one of the PA's who needs to order the catering for the company so I have a list ready for them :)
John, have some pizza. I personally don't eat pizza but if you do, have a bite. You can get rid of inflammation in a jiffy.
Justin I'm sure you smell good lol. All that coconut! LOL
Rosey I have tried oil before but my P doesn't like it. It gets worse as my skin can't breath. Lots of Flaymers have given good reviews on this though.
Oh John and Michelle just get married,lolol,you both bounce off each other and am sure you both love the way each other looks it's the law of attraction !
10 Dec 10:02
Yes Rosey, they are giving me a cramp already.
10 Dec 13:23
Yes , i get my moneys worth Michellle,I will have that gluten/wheat filled greasy blob for lunch :) Yes i had swollen ankles when i was holiday that didnt look good, as soon as i got back home and went back to normal with eating and drinking etc , which is normal for me , it subsided ,gone thank you :)
10 Dec 15:11
Hahaha Rosey lol,Well if myself and Michelle got together to wed,2 flakes can join as one, hmmmm thats one big flake :), Well if Michelles happy to scratch my back on occasion ? that would be nice too :),the confetti can be saved up from me flakes so thats a good budget on that for the wedding , Sounds wonderful, bliss ,I like to plan well :)
