Who is your support system?

The one thing I have heard for decades is that no one understands. My first true supporter was my husband who "understood" me. He had never heard of psoriasis, but when it came time to fight he was there by my side.

I had been going to the same dermatologist for years. I always had severe psoriasis over my whole body. He would give me a small tube of cream to last a month but it lasted less than a week. When I asked him for a bigger tube, I was told to add Vaseline to the medication. My husband came with me to an appointment. He asked him doesn't this cut down the effect of the medication.

I got my first large tube of medication. Who is there for you no matter what? We would like to hear from you. Diane (Team Member)
