Hi, I'm Camille. For years, from I was born I've been struggling with my chronic skin disorder. I was grew up in a neglecting environment, so I've went through a traumatized childhood of bullying and scorn. At one point during high school, I got suspended from school because of how bad my skin has gotten, my skin was peeling and flies was just clinching to me so my school mates didn't want to sit next to me in class. Telling my story now it's really hard because it brings back so much anxiety I've went through and still going through.
When I had turned 18 I started working at a gas station as a pump attended and during working my co workers would make fun of how my skin flakes and how shiny my face was. I still bare through it so I could support myself in buying my creams but it wasn't enough to maintain myself because the steroids and changing of creams and lotions is that not the lifestyle I can keep up with. And with the kind of condition I have, I have to be financially stable and that's my problem. I've went to the hospital numerous times but I keep on getting the same creams that doesn't works and it's so expensive and really doesn't last long enough, what I have is dermatitis, where anything can literally makes me break out. I break out every month because I don't have the funds to attend to my skin the right way, when I break out it itches for days, my skin gets red( I meant all over my body) no where exclused, then it flakes and leaves dark patches. It's just all the way horrible. I don't have family to turn to for help, I just want to feel normal and just be accepted and not have to be wearing baggy clothes and long sweater in a very hot day just to go outside to hide my skin from people. It's just so much that stems from my skin situation, no stable job, going through financial struggle and just don't know what my future will be and I am already 25 going 26 June. Up to this day I am still going through the same thing, even now I am dealing with anxiety everyday and I would and will appreciate anything from anyone whose Willing to understand my story and help me out to able to visit a dermatologist and to able to keep up with appointments and to buy my steroids, getting my eczema shots and whatever else procedure I have to go through to just maintaining my skin so I can go out there and start my life because I don't have one right now. Please I am asking.
Thank you, Camille
