I'm going to be talking about how to deal with a health condition called Psoriasis: The condition is a non-contagious autoimmune disease whereby skin rapidly accumulates in patches on the body, causing a build up of dry, irritated and scaly skin. (Yahoo) - so if you are struggling with it or know friends that do or just want to learn about it because it can appear any time so just be-ware then yea have a long read...
I know not everyone in the UK has this skin disease but guess what, I do! and believe it or not there is a lot more people in the world that has it than just here...I haven't done that much research into it because I don't like the pictures that sometimes come up even though I can see it on my own skin it's not exactly pleasant but when I saw Kim Kardashian struggling with it on her reality show KUWTK I thought maybe it will give people a better understanding as to what we have to put up with on a daily basis because it can get really bad and spread to all different places on the body, lucky for Kim she just said she had it on her stomach and legs, I actually have it on my legs, body, lower back, elbows, head, behind my ears and arms, quite a lot of places but I am just glad to be missing the some other delicate places which I am sure you will agree with and apologies to people that do struggle with it there..I definitely know I am grateful for that at least.
It actually came to a point later as I grew up in my late teens I had anxiety with it going on public transport travelling to college all the time because I kept thinking the person beside me or behind me was staring at it and just thinking nasty stuff so I was always sort of chugging my jacket up a bit even though it wasn't hiding anything it just made me feel that little bit better when really I should of just sat there comfortable not caring because this isn't my fault - yes I can help it from getting really bad but it comes back constantly and you just need to deal with it. As a result of all this I suggested to my dad to get some sort of medication from the doctors which I absolute hate but it was a must if I wanted to get most of it cleared it up and I got prescribed two different ones:
|Dovonex Ointment Calcipotriol by LEO which was for my skin areas|
|Scalp Solution for my head|
next time you go to your doctors seriously ask for these!
Cara has slightly put a downer note on it by saying she could end up giving up runway modelling because of it but I don't think she should..I don't think it should be that big a deal for people because she is gorgeous and obviously has the body for all the clothes so that should be all that matters instead of staring at her skin and thinking "what on earth is that?" It all seems a bit far fetched...I just think more people should speak up about it instead of sitting hiding away and stopping yourself from doing what you love because of it. It is in no way the new 'in' thing to have because I have read someone's comment on an article saying that, it is one of the worst health conditions anyone can ever have, not just models.
Share this post if you think it might help someone, I know it's not exactly the best advice or in depth post about it but I hope it will help some people who are struggling to deal with it and just make sure they know they can feel confident! It's not your psoriasis your being judged on..your dress/shorts/outfit will stand out more! Please feel free to comment if you struggle with it or know anyone that does and maybe put some advice as well. ~Follow Your Dreams~
