Living with Psoriasis: PatientsLikeMe Member Lissa Featured on Patient Power

Posted June 4th, 2012 by

“I don’t really know too many people around here with psoriasis.   It was hard to relate with somebody.  My family, my friends, my husband, they’re great support, but they can only see what I’m going through, they can’t go through it the way I do.  It’s really important to be able to connect with people who truly understand what you’re going through.”

Psoriasis Patient Lissa

In March, we introduced you to Lissa, a psoriasis patient who had recently started blogging about life with this chronic skin condition.  At that time, she had begun UVB photo therapy treatment for her psoriasis.

Now, several months later, you can see how Lissa is doing after completing her 51st UVB photo therapy session – and how PatientsLikeMe continues to play a role in her wellbeing – in a Skype video interview with our partner Patient Power, a site dedicated to connecting you with the experts on your condition.  That means doctors and patients.

  1. I have had psoriasis for about 10 years now ,, at first it started in my scalp for for 8 years now it’s moved to my behind, so one day was talking to this African lady and she told me about black tar soap after using it two time a day for the last three day it has cleared up . The red spots are not red any more and I’m not itching at all. Hope it could work for you ,, it won’t hurt to give it a try. You can buy it from any store, Walmart,CVS ..ect.and I all so started drinking yellow root,you can drink it hot like a tea,it’s an Herb so it ok to drink as you please.you can buy this at any herb store or grocery is where I buy mines.it looks like green sticks but on the in side it’s yellow.

  5. This is considerable as the more effective we remain in dealing with pediatric malignancies, the much more we need to bear in mind the aftereffects of therapy as well as the future of the survivors of youth cancer cells.

  6. Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Woud you advise starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out
    there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas?
    Kudos!

  7. Many skin care items proliferating on the market are heavily laden with dangerous
    and manufactured substances.

  8. Thanks for shaaring your thought about cam girls.
