Stress and Psoriasis

So, Charlie, I just read your lightning horror story. And your take on stress and psoriasis. My friend, Julie, explains it by astrology. It all makes sense when she’s talking about it but then I totally forget it.

Stress is weird. I kind of wonder if you get to release it somehow…now this is another story from Julie. It seems some animals, when they escape from the jaws of their predator, they shake their body fiercely–releasing the tension. Then they just walk away.

But we got a brain, which can mess things up. We don’t just walk away. We run things in our head–our mind. And that stress in the mind just naturally gets sent to parts of the body. So, we may not be able to avoid stress, but we need to know how to let it flow out of our body so that it doesn’t cause mayhem.

I’ve boosted my D3 and K2 over the last few days. I’ll keep it up for maybe a week. Always interesting to have your own body to experiment on–ha! We don’t have to wait for the lab to get back to us with the paperwork. We’re it. Anyway, I don’t know whether the two little spots on my left leg are from the crazy stress that’s been happening or that little foray into goat milk yogurt (which I barely had a few tablespoons over a 5 day period). Anyway, that’s depressing. I really wanted to be able to eat yogurt again. Oh, well.

We finally got rain in Vancouver. That is a very strange sentence to write when we used to spend all our time bitching about the rain. But this two days of downpours and high winds has made things interesting. Lots of branches on the ground. And leaves. And power switched off by nature. Oh, it’s that sad little moment that reminds you that winter is coming. Your first reminder.

Just remembering to take a deep breath.

I live in the beautiful city of Vancouver, on the West coast of Canada. I share my apartment with a little Brussels Griffon called Lucky. I like to read and watch movies and draw cartoons and write. Mostly I like to putter. And fix things. And think.
