LeAnn Rimes, 38, took to Instagram to reveal her ongoing psoriasis battle that, according to the NHS, “causes red, flaky, crusty patches of skin covered with silvery scales.”
“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.
“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.”
LeAnn deliberately chose to post on Thursday, which marked World Psoriasis Day.
She’s spoken about having the condition before but, LeAnn writes, “this time is different.”
“Even though I’ve opened up, I’ve still kept hidden,” she says.
