My Psoriasis

Posted in My Narcissisms, Rancid Recollections with tags on December 1, 2010 by A lo Hawk

As a youngster, I was afflicted with the skin disease psoriasis.

red rash; white, flaky, scaly skin on arms & legs

My parents took me to a dermatologist who recommended strange treatments.

The only effective cure appeared to be mega doses of vitamin D  and fresh air.

Now I crave a daily dose of self powered outdoor recreation.
