"My career is doing ad campaigns and photo swimsuit photoshoots!" she laments. Indeed, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed her family made $65 million last year.

"People don't understand the pressure on me to look perfect," she adds. "When I gain a pound, I'm in the tabloids." She then asks the doctor, "I'm not going to get this on my face, am I?"

When the dermatologist recommends she lead an "easier, slower-paced life," Kardashian bemoans, "That's just not possible."

Kardashian also wrote on her blog, "I head to the dermatologist after I discover a weird rash on my legs. Khloe freaks me out saying it’s ringworm, but it turns out I have psoriasis!! My mom has had psoriasis for years, so it’s good that I can talk to her about it."
