Life With Psoriasis can be Hard

19/09/2023 - By Dr. Catherine O'Leary

It's hard to live with psoriasis.

Everyone else looks perfect.

You constantly search for a cure.

Is it my diet?

Am I too stressed?

Do I need to lose weight?

You feel ashamed and want to hide your skin.

You can end up feeling sad and depressed.

Tell your family. It helps to know people love you.

Tell your doctor who may be able to refer you to a psychologist.

Talking helps.

There are other people with psoriasis who feel the same. Find them and get support.

Remind yourself of all the wonderful things about you.

Life can be good even with psoriasis.
