I apologize for not updating this recently. It's been crazy around here the last few weeks. This has been a tough week for me as I got some news that was not what I had hoped for. Unfortunately, the rash I came down with earlier this summer has not cleared up and is getting worse. I went to the dermatologist yesterday and he confirmed that I have psoriasis, which is a chronic autoimmune skin disease. I'm so thankful that it is not life threatening, but there is no cure for it so I'll have it for the rest of my life. To treat it, I'll have to give myself injections twice a month to supress my immune system. These treatments work well, but they cost $2400 a month. Obviously, my prayer is that insurance will cover these treatments as I will not be able to afford them otherwise. I will also need to have my tonsils out sometime in the near future since strep throat can trigger a bad outbreak of the psoriasis. It has just been a lot of stressful information all at once. On the bright side, I feel fine (except for the itching which is driving me bananas) and luckily my Dad's cousin is a dermatologist and was able to give me a much-needed second opinion and calmed my fears about the process. Please keep me in your prayers if you don't mind!
