I’ve had psoriasis ever since people started to ask me questions about it. It first started at primary school, when the kids started to notice. Them noticing, meant I noticed. The most common question I got was “What did you do to your elbow” – alluding to the fact my psoriasis looks like I’ve taken a bad tumble down some stairs. It’s triggered when other’s notice, or when I have a flare up but as time has gone on I’ve become more and more confident.
I wouldn’t say I love my skin. My psoriasis is part of me now and I really don’t think about it.
