I am finally posting my first blog! I have wanted to do this for a long time now, but I have been busy with exams and to be honest a little part of me has been afraid… But here goes!
I’ll start by introducing myself. My name is Damini. Many of you may or may not know that I have been suffering with psoriasis most of my life. However, over the past 6 months I have had quite a tough battle against this disease. But I can finally say I am starting to win!! I have been through a roll coaster of emotional and psychological challenges throughout my journey with this condition, in particular these past 6 months. Even though I have had this condition for 18 years, I don’t think I have ever gotten used to it and I am constantly educating myself about this condition.
Psoriasis gets seen as “just” a skin disorder and the psychological impact psoriasis has on a person are underestimated. So I have created this blog in aim of raising awareness, to share with you my journey and on-going experience with this condition. And also, giving me a chance to hear from other sufferers and their stories.
Psoriasis is not contagious. Awareness is!
