I suffer from a rare genetic skin disease called Ichthyosis. I also just recently learned how to spell it. For a long time I was afraid to talk about it and refused to acknowledge its presents in my life. This tactic was a double edged sword. On one hand I have never let this disease hinder my passions or allowed it to be an excuse, and on the other hand I have refused to accept and love a part of myself that I cannot change.
This realization has brought me to this point. A point where a public platform like a blog is the most grown-up and reasonable response to change my past ways. I love my-self for everything I am and am not and thats why I am willing to share.
This section of the blog is devoted to talking about my skin and how I care for it on the trail. for more information about my skin disease and other related skin types check out my fundraising page below.
