I don't think anyone who does not have psoriasis actually understands how very painful it can be. I have encountered people who have thought I was just lying about the pain. When you cannot walk because you have it on your feet, when you can't wear shorts because it's on your legs
, when you can't pick up your daughter because it is on your hands, why can't people see that? Don't they see the bleeding and cracking, the open sores with stuff oozing out? It is hard for people with psoriasis to get around especially if they have no money to see a dermatologist and to buy the prescriptions that cost so much yet last for so little time. I have had my thumb nail fall off twice because of this hellacious disease. The skin falling off and all that I have mentioned still will not convince some that psoriasis victims are suffering. I have met some that are sympathetic but the majority are sickened by the sight.
Saying, "Eww, what is that?" will not get me to shop at their stores. Has anyone else had bad social experiences because of P?
