Many people have not ‘come to terms’ with their condition – hiding it – and that’s ok. Others believe it hasn’t taken over their lives – that they haven’t become Ichthyosis – and that’s ok too.
But it’s also ok to see Ichthyosis as part of our identity, and to be proud to have the condition. Many disagree with me but it affords us so much: a point of difference amongst the clones, a conversation starter, the ability to think and act deeper than the superficial, a great sense of perspective and the option to be part of a supportive, connected community.
Be proud of your identity – Ichthyosis and all. Work at being proud every day. ‘You get proud by practising.’
