My story

[p][img][/img]T[img][/img]hank you ALL for your lovely donations!! You ARE very kind soles. Special thank you to Jonathan Morgan, Jo C, Maurice & Zack GW. And my lovely Dad.[/p][p]Psoriasis Association are a supportive charity & will put the money to good use. [/p][p]My time was 0:56:18. Overall position 3258 out of 7924. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you ALL[/p][p]Nick [/p][p][img]//:0[/img][/p][p]Please donate to encourage me to run 10k. Not only would you motivate a fat bloke shift a few pounds but you’ll be supporting a charity very close to my heart. [/p][p]Every year the Psoriasis Association helps thousands of people whose lives have been affected by psoriasis including mine.[/p][p]Psoriasis is an immune condition which affects the skin and sometimes the joints (psoriatic arthritis.) Psoriasis is a common skin condition that is thought to affect 2% of the population of the United Kingdom and Ireland. [/p][p]When a person has psoriasis, the skin replacement process speeds up, taking just a few days to replace skin cells that usually takes 21-28 days. The result in an accumulation of skin cells on the surface of the skin, in the form of a psoriatic plaque. Psoriasis is a long-term condition, sometimes it is mild and sometimes it is more severe. Whilst there is not a cure, there are many treatments available to manage the condition. [/p][p]Age 15 I broke out in guttate psoriatic plaques, it has remained stubbornly loyal ever since. [/p][p]Psoriasis has negatively impacted my self-esteem. Figures from a survey from 250 young psoriasis suffers in 2018 highlighted;[/p][p]94% affected by anxiety & depression.[/p][p]42% too embarrassed to seek help[/p][p]69% feel healthcare professionals don’t understand how they feel. [/p][p]60% feel family and friends don’t understand how they feel. [/p][p]77% negative impact on social life [/p][p]47% negative impact on studies or career. [/p][p]67% feel isolated. [/p][p]I resonate with those statistics. I felt self-conscious wearing t-shirts. I would always wear long sleeve tops even in hot weather. It wasn't until 30 years of age before I plucked up enough courage to work in a clinical healthcare settings where short sleeve uniforms are mandatory. [/p][p]Please support the Psoriasis Association. They rely on the generosity of others to help continue in the vital work in supporting people, raising awareness and funding research. [/p][p]Thank you, [/p][p]Nick[/p]
