I swear if it isn’t one thing it is another thing.  There always seems to be something wrong withme.  I have been doing really well whenit comes to the MS and now I have a new issue. I would much rather deal with the MS that what I have going on now but Iguess I don’t get a choice in all of it.  I think I have psoriasis (I haven’t gone to a doctor for it yet buteverything I have researched leads me to believe that I have it.) Psoriasis isa chronic condition in which the immune systems sends out faulty signals thatmakes the skin cells reproduce faster than they should.  What gets to me is that this is another thingthat my immune system does wrong!!!!  Iam starting to think that they should get rid of my immune system because it iscausing more problems that it is worth. There are several different types of psoriasis and I the one I have iscalled inverse psoriasis.  This type isfound in folds of skin like your armpits, genitals and under breasts.  They say that this type is aggravated mysweat and friction.  Well what in theheck am I supposed to do now???  I guessI can use this as an excuse when doctors tell me I need to exercise.   For me personally the spots that I have areitchy and painful to say the least. Right now I have it under both arms. They are ok on days that I don’t sweat and have my jacket on.  I am glad that work is always cold because Ican wear my jacket and not look like a freak.  They also say that there isprobably a genetic link but as far as I know I am the only one in the familythat has it but we all know that I am always the odd ball.  I think I developed it because of the Tysabrithat I take for MS because of how the drug works it messes with the immunesystem.  I will probably never know forsure what is causing it and it will never go away.  It makes me sad to know that I now have todeal with this disease everyday for the rest of my life.  It embarrasses me to say the least.  I can only imagine what people think if theysee it.  They look like big bug bitesmost of the time except when they get the “scales” looking tops on them.  It is the weirdest thing I have ever seen andonce they start to peel it gets caught on things and hurts then it starts toitch.
Here a few pictures of what it looks like.  I am not posting any pictures of me becauseit is too hard to take pictures of mine because of where they are at.

An Update On Cinderella

I received this email this morning and it made me smile.  I hope it can brighten your day as well!
Cinderella is now 95 years old.
After a fulfilling life with the now dead prince,
she happily sits upon her rocking chair, watching theworld go by from her front porch, with a cat named Bob forcompanionship.
One sunny afternoon out of nowhere, appeared the
Cinderella said, ‘Fairy Godmother,what are you doing here after all these years’?
The fairy godmother replied, ‘Cinderella, you have
lived anexemplary life since I last saw you. Is there anything for which your heartstill yearns?’
Cinderella was taken aback, overjoyed, and after some
thoughtfulconsideration, she uttered her first wish:
‘The prince was wonderful, but not much of an investor.
I’m living hand to mouth on my disability cheques, and
I wish Iwere wealthy beyond comprehension.
Instantly her rocking chair turned into solid gold.
Cinderella said,’Ooh, thank you, Fairy Godmother’
The fairy godmother replied,’It is the least that I can do..
What do you want for your second wish?’ Cinderella looked down at her frailbody, and said,’I wish I were young and full of the beauty and youth
I oncehad.’ 

At once, her wish became reality, andher beautiful young visage returned. Cinderella  felt stirringsinside  her that had been dormant for years.
And then the fairy godmother spoke once more:
‘You have one more wish; what shall it be?’ 

Cinderella looks over to thefrightened cat in the corner and says, ‘I wish for you to transform Bob, my oldcat, into a kind and handsome young man.’
Magically, Bob suddenly underwent so fundamental
a change inhis biological make-up that, when he stood before her, he was a man sobeautiful the likes of him neither she nor the world had ever seen.
The fairy godmother said, ‘Congratulations, Cinderella, enjoy your new life.’
With a blazing shock of bright blue electricity, the fairy godmother was goneas suddenly as she appeared.
For a few eerie moments,Bob and Cinderella looked into each other’s eyes. 

Cinderella sat, breathless, gazing atthe most beautiful,stunningly perfect man she had ever seen..
Then Bob walked over to Cinderella, who sat transfixed
in herrocking chair, & held her close in his young musculararms.
He leaned in close, blowing her golden hair with his warm breath as hewhispered…
‘Bet you’re sorry now that you cut my nuts off.’ Registered & Protected
