It's been a while...

So it's been a while since I have posted anything. I have just been really very busy. Been under a lot of stress recently and am now starting to see the results of that stress in the form of blisters popping up on my hands. My feet have been just blah for months. Thickened skin on the pads of both feet, little blisters on the sides and on my toes top, bottom and sides. My fingernails have pits and are peeling and splitting so badly they are down to the skin. I tried keeping them painted in hopes to strengthen them some but it doesnt work all that well. My feet are peeling, my hands are peeling. All in all though I still believe I am lucky. Luckier than some. I know that some people are how I used to be and thats no fun. Anyway, Im hoping that everyone is enjoying their summer and staying safe and pain free. If anyone knows if those who used to be on the national psoriasis foundation site have found each other on another, please let me know!

Made it through Christmas

Well we made it through Christmas without too much turmoil. Everyone got what they wanted, for me, an IPod touch! Now when Im sitting at my own dr appointments or at my hubbys I can play a game or watch a movie or just listen to music. Its pretty cool, Im still excited over it. I hope everyone else had a decent holiday also.

Ok, for my hands, I have a few bumps here and there, only a couple of them painful on my left thumb. My fingertips just get that hard leathery skin over them and then peel off in big chunks. I hate it.

My feet... ugh, my feet. I wish I could get them to calm down. I have to wear socks all the time right now because my body thinks the purpose for feet is to act like velcro. the center bottoms of both feet are scaling, peeling, cracked. All around my toes I have blisters and peeling skin. The tips of my big toes have blisters and peeling skin all the way up to under the nail. Ive soaked them, slather them with vaseline, which normally softens the skin enough that I can sleep a day or two even without socks on but nothing is working lately. Ive tried to keep as stress free as possible too but sometimes this crap just has its own plan in store I guess.

Now Ive had a bad cold the last 3 days, sore throat, stuffy/runny nose, now a mild but irritating cough. Im wondering what my hands and feet will look like in a week.

Ok, well thats about all thats going on right now. Ill try to post next week again. Its hard with the heavy schedule of doctor appointments. Take care!
