…Get on with it.
I’ve got a massive problem with my skin; Dermatitis and Psoriasis. When I don’t have this, I’m far more happy with my body and appearance. But when it flares up, terribly like it has now – I go into complete obsessive mode. I cry, I scream, I shout, I let it consume my thoughts, poison my energy and cause issues in relationships.
In trying to repress my anxiety it has now came out my body in other ways. Psoriasis’ main trigger and cause is in fact stress as it runs off your nervous system and immune system. When we feel high stress for long periods of time, our immune systems weaken.
When I first started to feel depressed I woke up covered in dry, scaly, red skin to no surprise it was psoriasis. Since then I’ve been dealing with small flare ups, but now in the peak of change in my. Lifestyle and mental health my skin is almost as bad as it was 7 years ago.
I ask myself: did that clear up? Yes with commitment, medication and focusing on only looking after myself and that alone.
I ask myself: am I stressing about this now? Yes it’s all I think about.
I ask myself: what caused it? Stress.
So what will help it go? The same approach that many things can, get over the situation you’re in now, because you’re already in it. Now look after yourself, love yourself and no matter who you are everyone has a flaw thus is yours but it doesn’t mean it has to consume you always.
Look after yourself. Understand the negative impact stress can have on your life and health.
Try your best to not repress stress but smash straight through it and conquer it.
Don’t let stress become you like it has me and my skin. Let it be a lesson.
