So this is what it really is...

You know I said I was sore....

I've been telling you good folk for sometime now what Psoriasis is and how it affects me but I have never shown you my Psoriasis.

Now this post is not for the faint hearted, and that includes me.

I have thought long and hard about posting these pictures of me, but to make this real, and so you can see what I am suffering day to day I am posting these pictures of various parts of my Body (not those bits!!!).

You won't enjoy it...but this is me....

Yes it is as sore as it looks

Here's looking forward to being greased up by the nurses at the hospital as soon as possible

Holy crap! I've never known anyone with this condition. Is yours an extreme case, is this typical, what exactly is going on with your body that this is happening? Reply when you're up to it, from the looks of you, that might be a while. So sorry for your condition.

Um, never mind. I just read your "10 years ago this week" post and did an Internet search. So sorry.

Oh My Dear Mr. A... That is the meanest looking stuff I've ever seen! I dearly hope you get the help you need at Hospital ASAP!!! I can see why you can't wait. Soooo very sorry you are going through such agony. My thoughts and prayers are with you and I send you many hugs from over the pond, here in L.A. to you there in the UK!

That looks very painful indeed, sorry you have to go through this and hope you get relief from this soon. I think posting these pics was a good idea to lets us all see exactly what it is that you are going through. I have heard of psoriasis (sp?)... in fact I had a friend in school who had it but very very mildly compared to yours. I had no idea that it could get as bad and painful as it looks in those pics. I don't think anyone can blame you for beiing a bit grumpy with all the pain you are in. Hope it gets better for you soon.
Take Care

thanks all, still at home, no call from the hospital yet.

Lounging around in my pure cotton Pyjamas today cos it's more comfortable.

Just told my Line manager that I won't be back to work until at least April.

Dear Mr A

I suffer from P too but after seeing your pictures I have tears in my eyes and will never complain about mine again. I get it on my shins, scalp and back but never as badly. I can only begin to imagine the pain you are going through. My heart truly goes out to you and I hope your derm starts to kick some ass with the hospital

God, that's awful. You poor man, how on earth do you ever manage to think about anything else, never mind writing whole posts.
I hope you get that treatment really soon.

That's definitely the most angry looking skin I've seen Agi. Hope the treatment helps settle things down. Hang in there.

makes my psoriasis look like a small blemish. I have had it all over before (guttate)and know how stressful and consuming it can be. I will most definitely be sponsoring or walking for skin! Good luck, hope it gets sorted soon.
