Day 4 for The Wego Health’s National Health Blog Month 30 Days 30 Post
Topic: “Disclose post. How did you decide what to share? What do/don’t you share?
When I decided to do a blog, I realized that I would be allowing people into a world that I hid for years. This thought was difficult initially. But I realized telling my story would be much more useful than hiding it. Even still, I have my reservations. A lot of it comes from years of caring too much about what people think, which was one of the main reasons I hid my condition in the first place.
I can only share what I’m comfortable with, that’s the bottom line. Something I still combat is actually exposing my skin. I can talk about it for days, but when it comes to actually showing off my skin to people who don’t have psoriasis, it’s still uncomfortable. I’m hoping within a few months/years I’ll be able to overcome that fear! But I have come very far with coping with psoriasis. 2 years ago, if you would have told me I would be speaking publically about my psoriasis, I would have looked at you like you were crazy.
