7 years!!! Today marks my 7 year anniversary of being psoriasis free. I still find it hard to believe. I never thought, after 47 years of suffering from this disease that it would ever happen. But it did.
And because I had no idea where this all was heading, I didn’t take photos of my healing process. But then, after a few years, we got Jamie’s amazing photos and testimonial of her six-week healing. It was a game changer.
And over these past 7 years we have received many testimonials and letters. Our 4 part Protocol appeared to be working. Not just for us but for many others. You can see them on our website: www.FreedomFromPsoriasis.com We now reach, every month, thousands of people all over the world.
This would never have happened without the unwavering assistance of our intrepid web guy, Mike (I call him M.) He created, and maintains, our website for free. We exist because of him.
And I have come to believe that miracles do happen. That the Universe sometimes chooses unlikely people to do unlikely missions. Two Americans (Charlie from Kansas, Bethany from Flint, Michigan) and one Canadian (me) met on a discussion board. We had no medical or research credentials. But we had the disease–so we could see what was working. That was our advantage.
And we also had what is often overlooked but important–dumb luck. Dumb luck was the greatest gift of all. So many things fell into place that shouldn’t have. So many problems were fixed because…well…who knows? They just were.
And now 7 years have passed. Some residue of the emotional damage of psoriasis still remains with me. But the depression has diminished. And the shame. And the feelings of hopelessness. Most common now is the feeling of gratitude.
Please consider passing this message on to all your friends. Take a risk. You never know if a friend of a friend might have a sister or brother or father or mother or whoever who just happens to have psoriasis. And is feeling desperate. I know I was….
…..but that was 7 years ago. I think it’s celebration time!!!
The photo is of the drawing I did for my dermatologist before I started the protocol. Six weeks later his jaw dropped.
Sending you all much love,
