Hello I'm an African American single mother of two, and I have suffered since age 7. Countless doctors, creams and medication havent done a thing! I get painful itch attacks if I'm outdoors to much and I have to watch what I eat daily. My wheals are big and red and get very tender throughout the day everyday. I started getting depressed in grade school all the way to high school. The kids would hit me to see their hand print raise up, chase me home and call me all sorts of bad name like freak.
I do secretly cry daily over my past but even now I get crazy looks if I have marks on my face, dont they know I'm in pain? I'm a walking ball of pain, when people or family ask how it feels I say "wet your skin, get a thin stick and hit the wet area, now do that all over", they say "wow, Im so sorry to hear that!"
My back take the worse hits everyday, Ive itched skin off and get bubbles under my feet.
Im so happy to have found this site, God bless you all!
