Psoriasis, ADD, Brain Fog – Matt W

Psoriasis, ADD, Brain Fog – Matt W


(Music) Hi, my name is Matt, and I have been
seeing Dr. Jaudy now for less than a week, right around six days. I’ve had treatments,
probably the amount of time that I’ve had treatments altogether, has been around
five hours, maybe. My psoriasis has cleared up over 50%, and its cleared up in
ways that it’s never cleared before. I’ve used medications, such as cortical
steroids, that you put on the skin. I’ve taken pills for it. The only thing that
they ever did were thin the skin, which is what they’re
designed to do, and basically it thinned the psoriasis patches out, so it wasn’t
actually ever my skin, where I can show you now, this skin right here on my
elbow is my skin, and I can feel it, and I haven’t felt this in 10 years. Now, the skin was what I liked to put my
problems on, for ever since it emerged, but realistically, my problems have always
been more emotional, over-reacting to situations, becoming very irritable in
situations very easily, losing focus because of it. I feel like I’m intelligent, and
I’ve always been trying to do something with my intelligence, and it’s been very
difficult for me, to the point where I went to a psychiatrists about a year ago, maybe more than
that, who put me onto Adderal,
which actually, for a time, for its time, it brought me out of a
depression, because my depression was caused by an inability to focus, and it gave
me the ability to focus. Kept me up all night long, but I was used to that
because, like I said, I had drug addiction problems throughout my life, so
being here in a week… Another thing, I smoked cigarettes
for nearly 20 years, and I’m 30 years
old, so I mean I started smoking when I was 11 years old. I don’t
smoke cigarettes anymore. I
don’t drink alcohol. I don’t smoke weed, and these are things that
I did, even though I don’t agree with some of them. I mean, I, you know, I don’t
get into legal trouble so obviously, I wouldn’t want to be on any illegal drugs, and I
don’t want to get into a car accident, or hurt anybody from drinking, so obviously
I don’t want to drink the way that I did, but I just felt like I had no control
because I wasn’t myself, and so what I’ve gotten in six days, other than my
skin clearing up, which is, by itself unheard of, is just clarity and unity between
the parts of myself that have been
separated, and it’s always been that way for me. There’s been who I want to be and
who I am, and they were never the same, and they have become more and more the
same everyday that I come here, and I’m just looking forward to the next week of
treatment, and continuing my, both my doctor patient relationship, and just the
overall human relationship, because that is what you get here. Real people
caring about other people. (Music)
