When i was a teen i wasn’t interested in working on cars. I wasnt interested in anything but girls and computers. Since i wasnt turning a wrench, wasnt building houses, chopping wood etc i didnt have many of the calluses that many men my age had. All the ladies told me how soft my hands were, yes i was a geek, always on the computer.
In 2005 i was 39 and I was starting to get Psoriasis. In 2007 my hands looked like they had an argument with a cheese grater, and lost. Below is a pic when it was about 1000 times better.
My hands were destroyed. My life changed forever. I thought i would never be the same.
I have since met many other patients advocates i am now clear but i hadnt thought of this until this last April. I was at Healthevoices when another Psoriasis advocate was walking by and we held hands for a second. She then told me i had the softest hands.
She made my day, my month, my year.
Even though Psoriasis has taken so much from me, hurt me so bad, i finally feel like i am winning this battle.
