I was 18 years old when I first discovered a small patch of dry skin behind my ear, it didn't really phase me as I thought it was just some dry skin. Little did I know this tiny spot the size of a pea will change my life forever.

4 years later and it was covering 80% of my body which resulted in me becoming bed bound for close to a whole year. This was the hardest time for me as I had previously never had any health conditions, and in just the blink of an eye I went from being sociable and always outdoors to being in bed not wanting to be seen by a single person, which resulted in severe depression.

Now I am 28 years old and I have finally regained my confidence with the help from some amazing psoriasis communities, friends and family. I can now finally accept the skin I am in, I’m proud of who I am and know that psoriasis is a part of me.
