I’M LOSING MY HAIR AND SLOWLY LOSING MY MIND!
Well, I turned 40 on Friday people. YAY! Is this a result of age? I think not!
If you can recall back in March I gave you an insight as to what was happening to my scalp and hair as a result of “psoriasis”. If you didn’t catch that post you can access it here http://relaxaspell.com/2017/02/17/does-psoriasis-cause-hairloss/
I’ve been trying a natural, holistic way to deal with this condition, but to no avail. I have visited the dermatologist on several occasions. Nothing has worked. After not seeing the dermatologist in about 8 months I decided it was time to go back. I am at my wits end with this stuff! I had a biopsy done of my scalp and the doctor says I have Lupus. I had an inkling of something other than Psoriasis, as the inflammation makes my scalp so red and sore. At that particular appointment the doctor gave me a cortisone injection for the inflammation. It seemed to work, so I think I might have to bite the bullet and continue those as long as they are affective. The doctor also prescribed a medication for lupus but depending on the antibody blood test, I might need a different form of treatment.
Now my goal has been to deal with “psoriasis” in a natural manner, not having to rely on conventional meds and such. But the Lupus diagnosis kind of changes the game a bit. Both Psoriasis and Lupus are Autoimmune conditions so the protocol of eating a certain way and living a certain lifestyle to control the symptoms is still the way I want to go. I feel that in order to get the condition of my skin under control I need to stick with the conventional doctor and medications, for right now. Hopefully that will change!
My point is that trying to deal with a condition a holistic way is great but sometimes you need the wisdom and expertise of conventional medicine, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! You just have to use common sense. Now I have to say that I wish I would have had the biopsy done sooner and I would have gotten this under control. My husband is saying “I told ya so” No, just kidding. But he did urge me to get this done a while ago. I should have listened! Just a little plug for my man!!
I feel kinda funny saying this but STRESS is what caused my body to get more out of control and attacking itself. I’m supposed to be relaxed, right! I always thought I handled stress well but it kind of creeps up and you don’t even realize it. PLEASE HANDLE YOUR STRESS, EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU DON’T HAVE ANY! LIFE TAKES OVER!
