Me & My Psoriasis

I wasn’t diagnosed with psoriasis until I was 17. 

The news came as a complete shock. I was diagnosed with psoriasis in 2011. I remember having a rash across my scalp and ears, thinking how weird it was because I’d never had any symptoms like this before. It began as pimples and progressed to the stage where my psoriasis manifested itself as irregular red patches of dry, raised skin all over my scalp and ears.

For me It was very difficult the visual aspect of psoriasis.

I was quite concerned with how it seemed. For a couple of years, I was in that phase of my journey, mourning the way my skin used to look and wondering if it was dreadful. I began to effect how I dressed and how my hair look like. I was very proud of my hair. 

It got worse when I was in my senior year of high school and after I went to university, and it only got worse as I became more stress.

I reached a turning point when I began to look inward and prioritise my mental health. I went to lots of doctors and every single one gave me different treatments.

Funny Story 🦁

One of the specialists told me, “Georgiana, you need to find a wealthy man and marry him. That way, you won’t be stressed and you’ll be able to control your sickness.” Of course, I burst out laughing.

Be your own sunshine

I stopped attending to doctors and began reading a lot about it. I discovered some incredible products that helped me control my sickness. I will show you what products I’ve used at the beginning and what am I using at the moment.

I’ve gained a lot of strength through the years. I’ve starting to believe in myself. I have the impression that I know what is best. I’ve realised that, in the end, I’m my own best advocate.
