My story

My name is Heather (obviously). I live in middle TN. I am 28. I have had psoriasis for about 12 years. The first 6 years were untreated. I just had it on my scalp, which I could not see with long hair. Then my hairdresser noticed the severity and told me it may be psoriasis. I actually thought it was ring worm at first (just a guess). Low and behold, it was the "P" word. I went to get my scalp treated. As soon as I started the mass of creams, it spread like wildfire. I'm pretty sure that is what ended my engagement at the time. He thought it was gross that he had to vaccuum up my skin! Then I tried several other treatments. Methotrexate works best so far, but is only temporary. I hate taking pills. I got pregnant in 2007 (was not yet taking them) and my skin got worse. Understandably, I have been single ever since. I get depressed. I had post partum after Emma but I don't think it was the baby blues. The psoraisis made me sad and lonely...which caused me to eat emotionally..which caused some weight gain...which caused more depression...which caused flare ups...etc. The road has been long and hard and pretty painful. I am down most of the time. I have my good days of course. I am just thankful for my healthy and beautiful daughter. I always try to remember...it can be worse! I pray that soon there will be a cure and I can be myself again.

Wanted to let you know about the Nashville Psoriasis Walk next weekend. The Psoriasis Walk, in Centennial Park, starts at 9:30 a.m. Sat., June 19. There will be entertainment, information about treatment, and free food and goody bags for all participants. This will be a small walk -- a nice way to meet others with psoriasis.

Info and register online at www.PsoriasisWalkNashville.org.

Hope you can join in. (And tell your friends!)
