about suicide himself. He was medical student who have a pride in Korean society
but He desponded of his future. Because of atopic dermatitis.

month". What is result? It is not known to us. Because He had to stop the
experience. Unless he had continually that work, He maybe would be taken away in
an ambulance. Someone says that I did not have atopic dermatitis in childhood so
I have nothing to worry about on that point. The answer is "You are under
In fact. It is right that Somebody who have experience in
childhood, hooked again in adulthood than the other that. But, Disease comes

action that scratches an itchy spot and my body gets nettle rash. So Now, I
stand on the confines of taking a lunch box.
There is another important
factor which causes an atopic disease in adulthood. It is taking stress to far.
Especially This disease take sick to more than 17 years person who have much
stress owing to study and be employed. Also they sometimes used to have nervous
breakdown and melancholia from overwork. People usually have a foggy idea about
atopic disease. That is cause of environmental problem, example of Sick house

run out of gas and feel frustrated. Moreover, Chronis state rouse up
symptom. For example, sore oozes are running not only arms, legs and any
other parts of body but also face appeared always. From this they were
occupied by another disease- social anxiety disorder. As having not any
friends, they did not grumble at any place.
Anyway, I am sorry to
these accidents. If they had endured the moment of despair, they would be
nicer. And if they had taken part in community such as my cafe, we could
hug their hurt mind.
CAH: If so, Did you ever experience as same impulse?
Park : Of course. I was on stage of chronic when I was
high school student. The season is that reach the age of puberty. So I was
more sensitive than the other once. When I went to the high school, my
face turn into red and my eyebrows falls out. Then, when I saw the mirror
myself, I thought I am a monster. According to this, I had an antrophobia.
In addition, In spite of entering the school by first of the list, I even
did not graduate the school. Because I was not absorbed in study owing to

cost of medicine was expensive. And As I used to failing get to sleep, my
family also is sleepless. So I had ever a bad mind.

For example, there is corner "grumble (Nuk-Do-Ri)" in my Daum
cafe. Sufferer would to open one's heart at there. So the corner is always
filled with pitiful story. In the concrete, the problem of relationships

problem of temporary absence from school.
Also A friend is in
straitened circumstances. His major was chemistry department and got a
position concerned chemical engineering. But, he has to stop that work
because chemicals strike him mortal blow. Such like this, the lose things

Mr. Park :
Look at me! Do you have to know that I'm a patient of atopy? You know, I
am normal. I am staying early stage. Thanks to my treatment table. My
know-how is that writing the diary of cure. Atopy's symptoms are every
kind and description. For example, someone is agreeing with milk but the
other is not agreeing that, so you must know the things agreed your body
