Browsing around on the mainstream medical sites, they almost seem to “poo-poo” how psoriasis can truly throw a monkey wrench into your life. Scaling skin is no joke. When my face was at its worst, I scared small children and got plenty of rude stares from people with no manners. It made me really uncomfortable to go out in public or do videos for online.
My skin would crack, bleed and ooze – just the slightest bump to an affected elbow would send pain shooting up my arm. I couldn’t sleep at night because shifting in bed would break open the skin on my torso and start it bleeding again. Psoriasis can be a major life disrupter, and mine was small potatoes compared to some psoriasis photos I’ve seen on the internet.
