Do you think you will be more confident when P clears up or will you still be shy and reserve?

I found thatwhen P clears up, one is more confident but there's always this little voice in my head reminding me of what I have. What do you think?

Steve @cartermac13

Now that I'm on Bio's my skin looks better than it has in years, but deep down I've had P for 41 yrs. & truthfully I will always have that little red flag telling me I could blow up at anytime & put me right back were I started, I really don't ever want to go back to that period again.

I found within myself this Little Voice that says"Don't get too confident or you'll Jinx yourself" and I have actually been enjoying myself which feels somewhat strange to me after so many years of struggle..I am reminded that flares come to those who wait..so I just got busy living..coupled with my Med and my diet ..my skin is not a problem to manage..I attribute those diet changes I actually started to dance again..Thanks Flaym Family for carrying me awhile as I had been in such a deep depression I couldn't feel confident Venturing on

Rosey @sue2023

I was clear once this year, for 3 weeks, didn't make a difference except I had forgotten where all my scars were, true, lol. Maybe if I was cleared for more than a mth that would be brilliant, yet to find out. Face and arms and bum,covered atm but legs are clear, feet are covered. That's life

Michelle @michelle1021

Ah that evil voice we have but as long as we just enjoy life and do whatever we can do to make it better for ourselves then good.
Steve, I'm glad the bio's are working for you. We know we can flare up anytime but we do not have to sit and wait for it to happen. Instead, try to enjoy life right?
Lindakay, I'm very happy for you. You've come a long way and the diet changes are the best one can do and try stick with it. Its more a lifestyle change than diet. I still cheat but my skin doesn't flare because of the changes I've made in what I eat. You sound more happy and positive too and it warms my heart to see that. Thank you for your contribution as well. You have helped a lot of Flaymers with giving advice and staying positive. :)
Rosey, oh I remember how happy you were when your skin cleared up. It was wonderful to see you like that but one thing I can say about you, is that your wonderful sense of humour and honesty towards your P and outlook on life has really touched my heart. It doesn't matter how covered we are, we are still human and loves to laugh and make jokes even about our P.
My short term P is clearing but the P on my lower legs (long term) is still there. I think it will stay forever but I dont mind, its not as if I'm parading like a model in a bikini.

Julia @kelj

What dietary changes have you made????

Lindakay1948 @lindakay1948

Michelle God forbid a Parade~ If you want to know about my diet changes Julia,it entails fewer than 20g of Carbohydrates,No sugars at all,increased fat and Moderate Protein and I use Gluten free everything I still bake though with Blanched Almond or substitute Nut Based Fours...I still snack and since I love crème cheese I use that to make myself what is called CLOUD BREAD once a week for sandwiches..I also make Swerve deserts if my sweet tooth is unhinged and I have lost 30 pounds and I also take 2 Calogen shakes a day which doesn't seem to throw me into a complete Flare which I was really afraid of in the beginning..I eat basically anything that's considered anti inflammatory I had to research everything before getting started and I love vegies so not much of a transition to using a ton of cauliflower for Keto Mac and Cheese..but one day a week usually Saturday I bake,cook and re-supply myself with the next weeks meals..My Dermatologists didn't even recognize me..my cheeks are glowing and my energy levels are up..so my Darlings hang in there ,not one thing helps all..this is not a One Size Fits all Lifestyle

Joseph @Whoknows
