August is Psoriasis Awareness Month and it’s also our 10 year anniversary here at Overcoming Psoriasis. I would like to thank all of you who have made this group a huge success. To celebrate please join me on my FB lives for 10 days starting on Monday. Some lucky members who participate will receive free Ocean Soothe products from Abundant Natural Health. Share an experience with me live and you are guaranteed a product.
Why is Psoriasis Awareness Month so important to me? There are so many misconceptions about psoriasis. Over the years with huge efforts from the National Psoriasis Foundation, I feel more people are aware of our disease. More people know our disease isn’t contagious. More people know our disease is a serious autoimmune condition that goes beyond the skin. More people know Psoriasis is a genetic disease and once triggered it affects every aspect of your life. More people know there is no cure, only control. More people know it affects 2 to 3 percent of the population, roughly 125 million people. At least 7.5 million Americans suffer with psoriasis. More people know it’s the most prevalent autoimmune disease. More people know it affects the joints and organs too. More people know Psoriasis presents other circumstances that can be life threatening known as comorbidities. More people know it can affect the eyes as well. More people know it can be disabling. More people know depression is extremely common in our community. More people are Overcoming Psoriasis with our support group. Thank you to all our members, God Bless!
(((Hugs))) all around.
