11/23/2016 Say WHAT?! wednesday!

Say WHAT?! What’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve heard about health or your condition. Was there any context? What did you think at the time you heard it – and what do you think of it now?

Being 1 in 7.5 million americans or roughly 3% of the worlds Psoriasis Psufferers, my disease never used to get the publicity that it should. On top of that MOST of us hide our Psoriasis so people never see it. Ever seen that person on the beach wearing long pants and a long sleeve shirt? Yep, ill bet they have Psoriasis. So MANY people have never seen it. They wouldnt know what it looks like, feels like etc. So WHY would they look it up? Thats right. They dont. So i gotta hand it to you, here it is.

Thats not bad very mild there. So i put out my hand to collect some change after buying a coffee and the girl looks horrified and throws the money at me.

They ask if its contagious. Dont want us in their pools, “Oh god forbid, my child gets that”

Yea its not catchy, unless you share my genes, unfortunately my daughter picked up that lucky gene and has Lupus. Another wonderful Autoimmune system malfunction. Lovely huh?

Then you get the people that think they can heal that. Oh you cant eat this, or that. Put some bleach on it. Softens the skin right up. Yes i could really see that (rolls eyes) ever had gasoline in a cut? Im pretty sure bleach would feel about the same. Spray this on it spray that on it. No thanks. Ill see my awesome Dr, Dr Robert Nossa. If HE tells me something, ill try it. You can read more about him here
