How does it affect your daily life? Your answer does not have to be written on your arm.

[–]45meatballs[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well, my case isn't too bad compared to some people, but I'd say the most common day-to-day annoyance is literally being itchy. Seriously, I scratch even mildly hard and I'll have bright red marks popping up on my skin within minutes. It not only looks weird, but it also burns, so being really itchy can be very painful.

It can be fun, though. I can easily entertain people with it and/ or freak them out, so I'm honestly happy I have this!

Edit: Wording

Do we even have to ask? Dickbutt.

What interesting insights do you have besides being able to write on your skin? I hope this doesn't get a lot of upvotes.

[–]mesotheliomalawyer1 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How that feels?

[–]45meatballs[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, it usually has a stinging/ burning feeling about three minutes after I write on or scratch my skin. It's not overwhelmingly painful, but it's not exactly pleasant, either.

I know someone that developed this at 16 without any prior signs or anything, how and when did you get it?

[–]45meatballs[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't know if I can answer "how" I got it, because for all I know, I was born with it. If I had to guess around what age I realized I had it/ got it, though, I'd probably say around 14 years old?

      Would you kindly write "Te amo" on your forearm?

      [–]45meatballs[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      Thank you for waiting so patiently!

      Te amo

      [–]AmnesiacManiac 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      Oh, thank you a lot! It means "Love you" in portuguese. It made my girlfriend happy haha

      [–]45meatballs[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      That's really beautiful! I'm glad I could make someone happy :)

      [–]Anonyme27516 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      I also think I have dermatographia as well, but, where I scratch, it doesn't come out as defined as your and others. Do you have any other symptoms as well such as upset stomach during flare ups?

      [–]45meatballs[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I've never had an upset stomach after writing on myself before. The only thing that happens is usually that the marks I make feel like they're burning. And the only reason these marks are turing out so clearly is because I'm trying to write hard enough to make it clear when I take the picture (to make up for bad camera quality).

      [–]George_D_GR 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      Can you please write the following? YAASSS QUEEN SLAY QUEEN ORIGINAL GAY Hehe you don't have to but my friends and I would laugh uncontrollably if you did it.

      [–]45meatballs[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      I can't believe I actually did this

      Edit: Sorry, I know it's a really bad picture, but I tried (and mostly failed) :/

      [–]George_D_GR 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      OMG, thanks so much honestly. It was really kind of you 😊

      [–]TurtlesWillFly 0 points1 point  (0 children)
