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, having had my worst flare-up a few years ago has been a real game changer for me. Through which I have learnt to accept and embrace my psoriasis. I’ve learnt to become Damini, and not “Damini – the girl with psoriasis”.
Although I’ve taught myself so much and trained myself to overcome my hatred towards my skin, I don’t think I’ll ever get completely used to it and I am constantly educating myself about the condition. Every flare-up is different and needs it’s own kind of attention, which makes the whole thing so much more difficult.
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. This will also give me a chance to share my tip and tricks that I learnt along the way, and also share with you my struggles (because lets face it, we all have those gloomy days). This blog will hopefully give me a chance to hear from other sufferers and their stories, and let me learn from others too.
Hope you enjoy
With love Damini x
