The thought of having Psoriasis have been consuming my thoughts this week. There’s times it’s a bit depressing. I don’t even have a severe case of it right now. But it’s all over my face where people can see it. If I’m not using the steroids you can’t really see it. The steroids make it super red. So right now I have red splotches all over my cheeks.
I’m now tempted to start wearing makeup. I haven’t worn much of it in the last like 4-5 years. I wore it while I was in college waitressing but since then I only wear it on occasion. But with so much redness on my face it’s making me feel self conscious. So now I have do decide whether I want to go through the effort of buying it and doing my makeup. I don’t think that it will be an every day thing because it does go away with my Humira shot but it doesn’t stay gone.
With the Psoriasis I now have another autoimmune disease to learn to live with. Learn to manage. Learn what works for me and what doesn’t.
I’m still waiting to see if my Humira dosage is going to be upped. And that’s another thing that worries me. If it is upped to once a week I don’t know what I’m going to about traveling for work. M gives me my injections bi-weekly right now. The thought of giving myself the injections gives me anxiety. The last two times I’ve had to give myself the injections I’ve messed both of them up. And within the next couple of years I may be gone for a month because of training for work. I’ll also have to figure out something with the pharmacist and all that. I’ll just have to deal with that when the time comes though.
