Exhaustion and Acceptance

It started when I was 18 while in undergrad and being really stressed about school work. My mom took me to a number of dermatologists, one who thought it was leprosy.

Accepting my psoriasis diagnosis

We got a second opinion from one who finally correctly diagnosed it. I’ve tried all kinds of medications: topical, injectable, and now oral. I’m 60-70% clear now and hope that a change in diet will clear up my skin even more. I’ve had to adjust my career and outlook on life to embrace this, minimize stress, and try to get a hold of it.
