I have been living with severe psoriasis on 85% of my body for over 15 years. I had always viewed it as a curse until the end of 2015. At that time my wife started working for NPF and I was introduced to an amazing community of others just like me! I realized the huge importance of social support when dealing with such a visible disease. I was able to get on a great treatment plan for my condition, and for the first time, I felt strong enough to speak about my experience. I created Psoriatic Pstandup as a way to talk about the hard parts of psoriasis in a fun and lighthearted way. After all, psoriasis is a serious disease, but that doesn't mean we have to take ourselves too seriously.
When you are living with psoriasis it can be emotionally deliberating. Chris has found a creative way to raise awareness for psoriasis through funny videos and memes. He uses humor to share stories of his crazy life with psoriasis. His motto is: Just because psoriasis is a serious disease doesn't mean we have to take ourselves too seriously."
