'Can't Fight The Moonlight' singer LeAnn Rimes has been widely praised after opening up about her struggles with the skin condition Psoriasis.
Psoriasis is described as a skin disease that causes red, itchy patches and can occur all over the body. It is a common disease with no cure, it tends to flare up and then subside from time to time.
LeAnn shared photos showing her flare ups on her Instagram.
"So much of my journey, both personally and within my creations, my new chant record and podcast coming out soon, has been excavating pieces that I’ve been hiding and bringing them to the light." she wrote alongside the pics.
"It’s been and still is a journey of allowing them out and welcoming and reintegrating those fragments back into wholeness."
"Music has been my gift, and why I’m here. But I want to give a voice to these other pieces of me. And I want to give a voice to what so many other people are going through. This is finally my time to be unabashedly honest about what psoriasis is and what it looks like."
"You know when you say something you’ve been holding in for so long, and it’s such a sigh of relief? That's what these photos are to me. I needed this. My whole body—my mind, my spirit—needed this desperately."
Go LeAnn, good on you for sharing!
