2014 was the first time my dog, Lucky, saved my life. I was almost ready to give up. My skin was worse than it had ever been and the itching was driving me mad. Suicide was looking like an attractive option. Continue reading “HELP! (BLOG #12)”
We’re a tribe—those of us who suffer from psoriasis. A tribe that can be recognized by red spots and plaques and a tendency to hide away. Rarely seen at swimming pools. Sometimes smell like tar…lol. Continue reading “Our Psoriasis Tribe (BLOG #11)”
Happiness is a sunny Saturday on Commercial Drive in Vancouver.
I was reading this article about a nurse who worked with elderly patients who were terminal. She found that they had five recurring regrets. But the one that came up the most often Continue reading “Happiness….a Choice (BLOG #10)”
Remember last week’s photo? Dated August 21, 2014? My skin was covered with masses of bright red spots and plaques? Diagnosis=severe psoriasis.
This drawing was made 3 weeks plus 2 days later–using the high dosage D3 and k2mk7. Massive improvement. I had no idea how much my life was about to change…. Continue reading “Gratitude Heals the Mind (BLOG #9)”
I want you to read this. I know it’s going to be too long. But I need to tell this story. It’s about my journey with this disease called psoriasis. Continue reading “My Journey with Psoriasis (BLOG #8)”
I don’t know about you, but I love to read or hear stories about so-called miraculous healing. Most of these healings are dismissed by doctors as spontaneous remissions or wrong diagnoses. But it’s pretty hard to argue with stage 4 cancer that vanishes overnight. Continue reading “Forgiveness Heals the Body (BLOG #7)”
Talk about the week of a thousand cuts! I have been in truck hell. A couple of weeks ago I bought a new battery (at great expense). But the truck was still slow to start. My neighbour (who knows a lot about trucks) said it was the alternator. So I ordered one.
Wrong. It wasn’t the alternator, Continue reading “Yikes! Life Follows the Blog (BLOG #6)”
It’s almost impossible to live in this world and not suffer from some degree of stress. But if you add psoriasis to the mix, stress can get out of control.
My experience in the past was to always have a low level of stress running around inside my head–mostly based on the fear that my skin was going to get worse (which it regularly did). And when it got worse my stress shot through the roof. Continue reading “Stress & Psoriasis–Meditation (BLOG #5)”
My apologies for being a bit late with the Blog this week but I was locked out of Microsoft Word (where my book resides) so I couldn’t record the audio. This happened because I finally took the plunge and got a new (for me) I-Mac computer. It’s actually previously owned but sweet it is. And boy is it F-A-S-T!!!! Yikes.
I’ve been noticing how many people, with psoriasis, Continue reading “An Exciting Week! (BLOG #4)”
The good news about procrastinating about learning to add audio to this blog is that I accomplished all manner of other things:
-added new door knobs to kitchen cupboards/organized computer area/cut hair/manicure/pedicure/repainted cupboard doors/made a card for friend/etc. etc. etc. the list goes on and on.
When I finally sat down, determined to do it– Continue reading “I Beat Fear! (BLOG #3)”
Here’e the thing about fear…it can use up a lot of time. Waste it. That’s what has been happening this week.
Let me start again. I’ve been watching my fear this week. No, it’s not about the coming year, getting older, financial insecurity, political confusion, et cetera–the usual suspects. It’s about needing to learn something new in an area that leaves me mystified at best.
I feel optimistic about 2019. Not sure why. Maybe part of the reason is that 2018 ended with one of the best parties ever. A combination of dress up, magic, hilarity, honesty, heart, dancing and basic insanity. Already that was weird because I’ve done my best over the years to avoid New Year celebrations.
