There are so many things I wish were actual factual prescriptions for psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis. Take shopping, for instance. I wish at my appointment next week, my NP would turn to me and say, “Nessie, you know what will cure what ails you? A trip to the mall or that awesome thrift store or the flea market. Girl, you need to get your shop on.”
Spending the whole day in bed reading would be another kick-butt Rx. “Nessie, no more of this working hard nonsense. For the next week, you need to spend the day in bed, reading all those books you’ve started but haven’t had time to finish.”
Ooh, I wish eating red velvet cake (or, better yet, red velvet cupcakes!) was a scrip. “We need two red velvet cupcakes over here—STAT!”
Getting dressed up and going out somewhere fun—like dancing or to a show—why can’t that be a prescription?
Clearly, we all need to ditch Dr. No Fun and start listening to Dr. Awesome—the kind of doc that prescribes stuff like I mentioned above. But we all know pretty much all of those things would not really make us feel better. (Well, not for very long, anyway. I’m looking at you, red velvet cupcakes.)
What do you wish could be a prescription? (More cowbell, definitely.)
