It’s Just a Bad Day, Not a Bad Life!
Don’t ever let a bad day make you feel like you have a bad life! In order to get the good, we must take the bad as well!
So, I’ve had psoriasis for over a year now. For some reason it seems to pop up more in the spring/summer time than in the fall/winter months (don’t ask me why, it’s usually the opposite for most people). Anyway, it started on my face this time which is the FIRST TIME it’s ever been on my face. I suppose it was bound to happen at some point. It’s hard to have psoriasis pop up on places that are hard to hide (likkeeeeee my face, unless I wear a mask or stocking over it but I don’t plan on robbing a bank anytime soon). My advice? Just FACE it!

The Itch to Beat Psoriasis
Living with a chronic illness like psoriasis takes courage. I learned that lesson as a child with psoriasis. The world is a big place for a 9-year-old. That’s when I started using phototherapy to treat psoriasis. The closest phototherapy light box at the time happened to be about 30 minutes away at the medical center in Oakland, California. My mom, who didn’t drive on the freeway at the time, overcame her fears to take me to light treatments three times a week.
Life According to Kenz
Since 2011, this blog and I have come a long way. There have been mountains to climb and storms to weather but I have never been more sure of my purpose or faith in this life and in something so much more magnificent following it. My sole hope is that as you read, you would feel encouraged and know that you are not alone no matter what battle you are facing.
If you have Arthritis, Diabetes or both this site is for you. This site explores the issues of living with two autoimmune diseases, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Type 1 Diabetes. I am Rick Phillips and I live with these diseases. This site is about the humor and struggles of living with these chronic diseases. I have had type 1 diabetes for over 40 years and rheumatoid arthritis for over 15 years. I have been married to Sheryl since 1977; we have two wonderful sons and three of the coolest grandchildren anyone could ever ask for. Along the way Sheryl and I have learned to have a great life, good laughter and a way to keep our fears in check.
City Girl Flare
A day in the life of a city girl living with psoriatic arthritis.
I love drinking coffee and reading dusty old books that I collect from antique and thrift shops. I also manage to live well with a complicated chronic invisible illness. I share my experiences as an Autoimmune Mess in order to help others along their journey through autoimmunity. It’s a hot mess chronic life!
My name is Todd Bello and I was diagnosed with psoriasis at the age of 28. Unfortunately psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease and there is no cure. I had a small red spot on my scalp that wouldn’t go away. I was very concerned. Since then I did a lot of research. I’ve tried so many treatments. Been in four double-blind studies. Light therapy, the Dead Sea, Skin Cap, Acupuncture, Herbal remedies, Dr. Pagano, Tanning, Raptiva, Embrel, Engineered Tuberculosis Injections, Gluten-Free, Diets, Topicals, Exercise, Hot Yoga, Healing Masses, Steam Baths, Sulfur Baths, Epsom Salt, Spring Water, Florida Natural Spring Soaks, Steam Rooms, Saunas, Tanning Booth, Chiropractic Adjustments, High Colonics, Dovonex, Talconex, Sulfasalazine, Coal Tar, Florida Sun, Aleve, Cortisone Injections etc..I turned 50 this year and I’m still determined to find a cure.
