Day Twelve: Asking for Help
The last time I went to the dermatologist for my psoriasis, I was completely desperate – it had been months since I’d had any treatment, and I needed it, badly.
She immediately prescribed UVB, and I started treatment that afternoon.
The treatment was a great success, and within four weeks, I was all clear.
But, some six months later, my psoriasis has settled in again; nowhere near as bad as it was, but still, not as good as I know it can be.
I’ve been using steroids to keep it at bay as best as I can, but it doesn’t really want to budge. I think I need to bring out the big guns – and most importantly get the professionals on the job.
So, I’m going to call my dermatologist tomorrow and just see what they can do – maybe there’s something else I can be using to better manage my symptoms, or maybe they’ll suggest I have another round of UVB.
Whatever they suggest, I’m sure it’ll have a bigger impact than what I’m doing now. Why not get my skin as good as it can be instead of just settling for it being as it is?
I have my team, ready to help me. Things can be better. I know I don’t need to do this on my own.
