I have also found that by using my blog to share my journey with psoriasis it has enabled me to talk and share information with other psoriasis sufferers, which I have found warming and comforting. Lemme say this first: I’m just a gal, sharing my experience, and what I’ve learned. I’ve never told my gf story on my blog, but i post gf recipes.

I will warn you that this is a long post, but I couldn’t think of any ways to share this story without just getting it all out at once! I hope I can find some people who can relate to this journey, and maybe even my learnings will help someone else!. My journey with Psoriasis started when I was 18 and living in the dorms.
My diet growing up may not have been gluten-free or Paleo, but my mom believed in butter, our dairy was grass-fed, our eggs came from a local farm, and we ate almost entirely whole unprocessed foods, including fish we caught ourselves fresh from the ocean and vegetables we grew in our garden. But the tests (TSH and T4) came back normal (albeit just barely) and my doctor never pursued it further. This is when I was diagnosed with early arthritis and scalp psoriasis. I love your blog and recipes. Almost a year ago I embarked on the journey of blog writing. I knew that I would receive no remuneration for writing, only the opportunity to share my story and create a space on the web for the psoriasis community to interact. During this past year I’ve often felt inadequate in my quest to address issues psoriatics and their caregivers might want to hear about. At times I ran out of ideas, just didn’t know what to write about. Sign up for the free Healthy Skin newsletter!

Just put yourself in my shoes for a second and imagine your skin completely shifted gears on you over the course of one week, and the only answer that you get from a professional with a foreign-sounding name, holding an iPad, is meditation and belief. Definitely get started on meditation. I’m so excited about beginning my journey and I thank you SO much for being kind enough to share your ideas and knowledge and help strangers.

I really did not know much about rheumatoid arthritis up until the time I was diagnosed.

It also scared me, as my mom dealt some sort of face rash in the decade leading up to her passing. My Psoriasis Journey. That’s a story for another day, but let’s just say that many aspects of my upbringing were less than idyllic, and that may have all played a role in bringing my physical problems to a tipping point.

Life took a few unexpected turns and I ended up moving to Belgrade (the capital of Serbia) for work. It’s a great city and I’m enjoying the experience, but blogging and psoriasis took a back seat there for a while. That’s not to say I’ve fallen off the healthy eating and green juice bandwagon; I just haven’t been OCDish about it as I once was. During my absence I’ve continued to talk to flakers through my Facebook page and email, and it’s been overwhelming how many of you have written in with thanks and stories of how my blog is helping. But this one psoriasis story cemented my faith in naturopathic medicine, and I used it to convince others of the the miracles of naturopathy. Anyway, happy to see you started the blog. Thanks for sharing your journey.
