Psoriasis sufferer: One year on
One year on, how's it going?
The original interview took place in October 2018. So when I got the chance to catch up Debbie we had a coffee and I asked her how she was getting on.
Are you still taking C60?
If I had to go back to how I was before I started taking C60 then I think you'd be peeling me off the ceiling. I've had some real challenges with my family this year and in the past it would have shown up in my skin.
As you can see [showing me her hands and her elbows] my skin looks great. I would have been itching and scratching with all the stress."
Are you still taking your C60 at night?
Have people around you noticed a difference?
I was invited to a friends wedding in the summer and it was a chance to see people I hadn't seen for a long time.
I had a lot of them coming up to me and saying, 'WOW!' They just hadn't seen me wearing a dress, EVER.
You see I was confident enough to wear a dress for the wedding. I was still wearing tights but I was wearing a dress. You're a fella so you wouldn't understand, but going out and buying a dress for a special occasion is something I have never done, I was really excited"
How did that make you feel?
Like I say, you're a fella so you wouldn't understand, but being able to wear a dress makes me feel really special. I'll send you some photos. My mum and dad will be at the party and they haven't seen me in a dress since I was a little girl.
I can't tell you how grateful I am for introducing me to C60. It's changed my life and I can't imagine going back to how I was."
