I feel so embarrassed

Printer-friendly version

I am 54 and developed psoriasis around 5 years ago. When I first got it my body started tingling like pin pricks all over my body. 

It now manifests on my arms chest back and face and blisters up. I feel so ugly and dirty and the steroids don't help. I make excuses not to go into work when it affects my face as it blisters up and I feel so embarrassed. I have no chance of finding a new partner because of this.
