4 Brave Lichen Sclerosus Diagnosis Stories. You are NOT Alone.

Listen to the podcast here: Getting a Lichen Sclerosus diagnosis can feel like a very lonely experience. Even though your experience is unique, there are aspects of it that run through thousands of people's stories all over the world.

Listen to the podcast here We All Experience Anxiety Appointment anxiety is familiar to many LS warriors. That sneaky anxiety creeps up when you’re heading to or thinking about a doctor’s appointment. Today I want to talk about overcoming appointment anxiety. We’ve all felt anxiety.
