I don't know how people who have it worse are at all comfortable... Psoriasis & stress go hand in hand, from what I know & have researched when stress gets worse Psoriasis can flare & the past year mine has gone from managable & hardly visible to out of control & I contemplate ever wearing shorts again - let alone sleep comfortably.
We try to avoid 'unnecessary stress - good luck in todays world represented by humans like Trump, we are in trouble, many times we can't avoid it especially if we have people in our immediate life who contribute to stress... rather than help eliminate.
Norm causes me stress on a daily basis & I find myself wishing I lived alone time & time again. Trying very hard to feel good not even 'better'- just good & he constantly brings CRAP into this house - for example he went to natures Emporium & picked up a salad & cheese ball that we enjoy - what else did he pick from the health FOOD store with thousands of options - potato chips. 2 bags. In the chip cupboard they went with the cheesies, rippled chips, low salt chips, high salt chips, taco chips, organic taco chips, greenpeachips & pretzels... enough is enough, that's the 'chip cupboard there's also several junk food drawers he manages to keep full. I AM trying to keep him healthy & alive & he fights me every step of the way. He also snacks on toffee & candy, sunflower seeds & his teeth (the ones that remain) have paid dearly for it. I can't 'stress about his health' anymore... he's heard it before, he obviously doesn't care - why do we & to top it off we are seen as 'Nags' for doing so. Living alone would be more peaceful. That's normal stresses...
'Outside stresses' last year caused me to flare to the point of no return I'm afraid... too much stress to mention, guns, lies, dick picts & more by 2 who intentionally misled & lied for their own selfish purposes, I write this now because I know they still read my blog & I have nothing to hide, unlike others. The sun the moon, & the truth.. I will be patient & let God control timing, if 1/2 of what I heard is true - it's been brewing for a long time & will be exposed sooner than later & have 'little' to do with me in the end. Stress? Is there any wonder it's got worse & out of control? When you realized you have been 'intentional fucked with' which has in fact contributed to my health decline & not wanting to socialize (trust issues - go figure) I now feel I have an OBLIGATION to warn others (especially women in the cannabis industry) so they may hopefully avoid being victims to the same nasty pair. ALREADY stressing about being seen this summer because of these physical 'scars' now very visible.. I won't hide away, it's just another lesson. A recent awakening has reminded me again, I am so much more than this body - I am a child of our creator & I will rise above. Everything for a reason.
If you see the signs of psoriasis TRY to 'GET it under control', sometimes I can't feel it, other times I wake scratching until I bleed & most days it's just incredibly sensitive. It changes from scaly in appearance to (especially if really upset) reddish purple in color, the redder it is the more intense my arthritis pain. I tried injections in the stomach for years that made me feel sicker with every one & it never changed it - it continued to slowly progress, I've been asked to consider a new medication but I refuse because "it can be harmful to the brain." Go figure. Special soaps dry it out - I would advise as soon as you see it- REST, EAT healthy, meditate (draw) & avoid ALL who stress you out if possible, for me it is possible & this rule has few exceptions - those who 'really stress' me out I can easily go months without speaking - we have feelings like this for a reason- we have health issues for reasons... had I started to listen to my body & GUT sooner I would not be as physically ill as I feel today, instead I kept it in' most of the time, I am paying for it mentally & physically.
Learn to walk away. Learn to speak up, Learn to rest.. Sunshine helps! This is what 'Turn on, Tune In & Drop out' means to me.. apply this to life - to recharge. Drop off the grid if you can if only for a few hours. Never be afraid of expressing LOVE, sooner or later is will be seen for the intent it was meant. When people rise above 'Physical beauty'... eventually, I think most do, we are all healthier.
Psoriasis has no cure, yes it is painful - more emotionally when people look at my legs with disgust (I see it) just like the 2 who chose to inform me I was physically 'Ugly' (have a look at my butt you two! You helped get it this way... ) I know shallow people exist & it should not bother me but it does... it bothers most of you too. It's why we all try so hard to look our best- it does not matter - don't give a fuck what anyone thinks because there will always be shitty people out there & there are also loving, caring, compassionate others, I know a few & am grateful to you - I'm sorry to show you my butt - but, this certainly is NOTHING to be ashamed of. It is life, many have it worse than I do - please, show others some fucking compassion instead of judgement - you might be next.
Why are we bothered by stress & the opinions of others - Who are they?
I don't know... I don't know why any of us think so little of ourselves that we ever forget for even a second we are a child of God. I AM a Child of God - exactly where & how I am meant to be - SEEN! * The worst is my lower back & bum - I have included this, I did warn you yesterday! hee hee hee
