Psoriasis is More Than Skin Deep – Clive Liu, M.D. Speaks – RSVP

Good support groups are invaluable to us – we meet and share information from people just like us – brothers and sisters under the skin – or sometimes, on the skin.  Our ethnic background and appearance doesn’t pay a part in the disease we share – psoriasis, in this case.

My psoriasis has been ‘resting’ for a couple years, but it’s beginning to stretch and yawn itself awake again…ask my elbows.

I still wear the slippers I had to cut away to make room for the swollen crusty weepy sores of psoriasis on my upper feet and the sides of my toes.  Psoriasis can be nasty and mostly attacks kids.

A professor at the University of Washington Medical Center diagnosed my Psoriasis – called it a ‘classic case’.  He stands out as the only M.D. – ever – to recommend an online support group to me and the online support group is how I learned kids gets this…often disfiguring disease.    www.psoriasis.org

If anyone needs a ride, let me know…you won’t be sorry you made the effort to go.
