Doctors Warning  — Against What?
from Ang

Well, I am 34 years old and my doctors keep saying when I’m 66 I will have horrible skin — calluses on my skin. But the problem is I live for today, not the next 32 years.

I have two children whom I love to bits, but I live for today not tomorrow.

Does anybody feel the same?  I hate the way I feel wearing trousers all the time.  What’s happened since I was young, free and single and I had skin like everybody else?

I got psoriasis when I was pregnant in 1992.  I would like a cure but I guess that’s not going to happen any time soon.  –Ang


Ed’s Response:  Why are your doctors forecasting horrible callused skin when you’re 66?  Are you doing something to obtain short-term relief from your P that they are saying will cause damage down the road? 

I hope that among your doctors is at least one dermatologist.  These days you should not have to live without recourses.  We have lots of recourses when it comes to treatments, but it might be frustrating and take time to find one that works for you.

Good luck and, if you’re of a mind to, write back and tell us why the doctors say you’re going to have horrible callused skin when you’re 66.  -Ed
