‘It is not easy being a mum’: Irish mum of three loses battle with a rare skin disease
- by admin
In a country where only 20 per cent of people have a university degree, the journey from work to caregiving is a life-long journey.
And as an Irish mum with three young children, it can be challenging to find the time to devote to the journey.
“It is very hard when you have kids,” Ms O’Reilly said.
“You have to take on a full-time role and I don’t have that luxury.”
Ms O’Brien, who works in retail in Ireland, has a condition that causes her to have severe dry skin and skin problems in her neck, neck, shoulders and hands.
“The doctors told me if I keep doing the same things, my chances of survival would be very low,” she said.
So, after several attempts to get an appointment with a specialist, she finally went to a dermatologist, who prescribed a topical cream that she claims helps reduce the symptoms.
“I have a really thick patch on my neck that is very painful and it has been very hard to get a specialist to do anything about it,” she explained.
“When they did give me the cream, I started using it every day.”
But I have had a few problems where it has stuck.
“Then, I’ve had a problem where it doesn’t go away.”
My skin is getting worse and worse.
“Ms Osario said the cream was the only thing that has worked for her, but she had to give up the daily use of a dryer for her children’s sake.”
As a mum, I can’t just sit around and wait for my skin to get better,” she lamented.”
So I am going to have to do all the cooking and laundry.
“If I had just got this cream, it would have gone away in no time.”
A dermatologist’s advice to parents about dermatology and how to manage dry skinThe dermatologist who prescribed the cream has since told Ms Osario that she has the condition but is “working on it”.
“He said it is not difficult being a mother, it is very simple,” she recounted.
“He is saying that I should get my son some help from a dermatology specialist.”
And I was really shocked.
I thought he was just saying that you should get a topical product.
“Ms Murchie said she had initially thought the dermatologist was going to say she should stop using the cream.”
After reading his comments, I knew it was not the right time to stop it,” Ms Murchiesaid.”
Even when I read his comments I was shocked that he said it was impossible to get rid of the condition.
“The dermatology professional Ms Muryer was referred to was a specialist at Mayo Clinic in Ireland.
But Ms Osbert is not the only person in her family with the condition.
Ms Murner said her mother, a nurse, was also affected by the condition and had to leave the house in the middle of the night to go to a specialist in Ireland for treatment.”
Her condition is extremely painful, she has severe dryness around her neck and shoulders,” Ms Oseraid.
Ms OReilly, however, said she has no plans to give it up.”
She is still working.
I think she will continue to do the job that she is doing and she is getting better,” Ms Osborne said.
