Psor Rocks

For the past ten years of my life, I have this skin disorder called psoriasis. Not all people are aware of this skin disorder because only 1-3% of the world’s population has psoriasis. I am one of the 1.8 million Filipinos who have this and sadly to say, there is still no cure for this skin disorder but it is not contagious.

Having psoriasis is not easy; it turned my life upside down. I even questioned God, why He gave this to me. Then I realized that I have no right to question Him because He has His own reason for everything. Acceptance is the first thing that I need to do and sometimes it is like an everyday battle that I have to face. I am so blessed for having family and husband who accepts, understands and loves me in spite of having psoriasis.

People with psoriasis are not just facing serious skin disorder but also discrimination in public places such as hair salon, schools, workplace, swimming pools, transportation and many more. It is really tough to have psoriasis especially if people are not aware of this.

Psorphil will be having anniversary concert entitled Psor Rocks (Music. Equality. Belonging. Respect. Love). “People with psoriasis standing against discrimination through music”.

So join us in our fight against discrimination. Let us celebrate life, love, respect and equality through music.

  1. I have a friend who has the same skin problem. This is a good movement. People should be aware of this and not be judgemental of people affected by this disease. I like your attitude!
