It pulls at your heartstrings like Whitney Houston did with her voice. Psoriasis SUCKS.
I know, because I was once covered head to toe in psoriasis. Yeah. I’m not kidding.
When I went to the dermatologist to find out what it was, it took several visits and a biopsy before they finally figured it out. That’s when the nurse at the doctor’s office told me, “you have the worse case of psoriasis I have ever seen.”
Yeah. It was that bad.
But I’m going to share with you information about psoriasis that you may not have heard before. Heck, you might not even realize you have psoriasis or scalp psoriasis until now — maybe you never knew there was a name for all those scales and red patches on your head and all over your trunk, limbs, elbows and knees.
But here you are on this page, and that's no accident.
When I was 18 I moved from San Diego to San Francisco for college. I went from pure sunshine to dreary, cold, damp, and windy weather of San Francisco, but I always felt like I didn’t belong, so hanging out with the misfits in San Francisco seemed like the perfect plan.
Only, it wasn’t.
During my first year in college I didn’t have any friends. As you can imagine, I became very lonely and extremely depressed. What was once a glowing, healthy tan body within months became a pastie-white, never-saw-the-sun body. I literally looked like a GHOST.
I was at an all time low.
But I was in college and determined to make the most of my studies and wander the streets of San Francisco with the rest of the misfits.
One afternoon, while opening mail I received a letter from my school that I needed to get vaccinated before I could register for next year’s classes.
If there is one thing you should know about me right now, it’s that I’m terrified of needles. TERRIFIED (despite being covered in tattoos!)
