“I was diagnosed with Ichthyosis Vulgaris about 3 1/2 years ago…I love what you do. You helped inspire me to come ‘forward’ into the public and actually reveal my secret. I used to be ashamed of what I have, but now I’m ready to embrace it. I hope to connect with others who have Ichthyosis too…” – Jaime
It is very touching as a mom to two with ichthyosis. So many times I’ve encountered what I see as competitive suffering. who has is worse, or worst, is there such an impassable bridge between raising an affected child, being an affected child, and/or being an affected adult? when I see conversations like this I am encouraged by people really reaching out to each other and making a difference, truly helping without artificiality. makes me very happy. You give a lot Carly. You’re a very good role model.” – Laurie
“Carly, about 18 months ago I reached out to you and you politely answered all my questions as a new mom to a boy with icthyosis (either nethertons or nbCIE). I want to help build your confidence when talking to parents. You were wonderful and continue to be wonderful on your blog!
There is a big difference between a parent and an infected person. You help bridge the gap. Early as a parent to a newborn, all my questions centered around creams. Now all my questions center around how best to parent a child with differences to build confidence and life skills. You help so much!
You are wonderful to talk to and read your blog. What I take from it the most is to stay positive. As a new parent, my mind went straight to the worst. It was so hard not to dwell and even cry about what we thought was a horrible life plight. The reality is that my boy is a superstar and has more personality than most toddlers his age and steals the show when he is a group of other kids.” – Camilla
