I think it's about time I raise awarness about this. What you are about to read is the Gods honest truth. I would never lie about something like this. The only thing I am changing is my name.
My name is Storm and I have had a condition called Psoriosis since I was 5 years old. As a kid it was hard to put up with due to the fact that everyone avoided me and called me names beacuse of it.
The kids weren't the worst part though, it was my Year 1 teahcer who made me feel worse. I remember that one day we were all sitting on the carpet listening to a story when studdenly she looked me in the eye and yelle "STOP SCRATCHING!" Ihadn't even noticed that I had been scratching at the red blotches on my skin. People were staring at me, judging me.
Soon though it went from teasing to the odd "what's wrong with your skin?" but every time I was put under stress or my emotions became hard to control from torment thrust upon me by others it would get worse.
Psoriosis is a stress related skin condition. The more stressed out I am the worse it gets. The best way to help calm it down is sunlight. The problem is I'm too afraid of the judging stares I get. I refuse to leave the house wothout wearing a jacket or a coat out of fear.
I have said many times that the worst wounds are emotional wounds, the wounds that can't be seen. Maybe, just maybe this condition is giving those scars a physical form, one that the whole world can see and use as a weapon against me.
