I’ve tried to stop listening to myself. I have a really bad habit of overthinking
and that has definitely led to a lot of the anxiety that I felt having psoriasis. A lot of the fears I have about people noticing
it or thinking about it. And I’m really just telling myself – calm
down it’s not as bad as you think it is, people don’t notice. Kind of calling my own bluff in a way
has really been my major coping mechanism. Because as I’ve said
before my particular symptoms are stress-related so I really have to think about how I think
about it more than I think about what I eat or how much exercise I get done. So it’s the coping
mechanism for me – to relax and try and stop myself from running amok mentally.
