Facing the world
Nobody’s perfect, right? Everyone has a challenge in life, whether it’s a health condition, an emotional issue, an unpopular opinion, or just a bad day. But not everyone has a visible challenge like psoriasis. It is one of the things that can make managing psoriasis so difficult—because even if you are coming to grips with your condition, you may have to manage others as they react to visible patches on your skin.
It can be frustrating, embarrassing, tiring, and it may even take a bite out of your self-esteem to have to deal with how others react to your condition. Not to mention a constant struggle to hide your patches.
This section is meant to help you approach some of these issues and to see things a bit differently while helping others to see you for who you are—and not just as your condition. It takes a look at how psoriasis can affect your intimate relationships, as well as those more everyday situations.
