“It’s torture living like this, torture,” Reid said.
The 28-year-old Clearwater transplant writhes from Cholinergic Urticaria, a sporadic hypersensitive skin disorder that bases her to break out in hives all over her body because she is allergic to her own perspiration and tears.
“It itches like crazy, I scratch my skin open,” Reid said.
“Any physical activity I do, I develop hives everywhere,” she said.
“It’s destroyed my life. I have no, I have nothing, I have nothing, no friends, no furniture, no help, no family here,” she said.
Reid has no equipment in her studio. She’s sold it all to try and make ends meet and to pay for doctor visits.
Dreadful of her mental condition and expressive state, Reid reached out to media for help. She is eager somebody out there will see her story and help her.
