Do you consider psoriatic arthritis to be an invisible illness?

This week, Oct 17 – 23, 2021, is Invisible Disabilities Week. Do you consider psoriatic arthritis to be an invisible illness? Why or why not? Please share your perspective.

  1. For the most part. Personally, you would have too look at my hands closely to see it or see me get up from a chair after sitting a bit to notice. I'm active and eat cleanly so I look rather healthy. However, it takes me a good hour at my computer in the morning with my coffee after I peel myself out of bed to feel like moving more and I don't do anything in the evenings because I'm too tired and brain dead ! I try real hard, exercise & stretch daily and take a Humiro biosimilar but I'm still in some pain and wear wrist braces a lot and good shoes.

    1. If only people could see how hard so many with PsA struggle to get moving in the mornings, . I hope the Humira biosimilar continues to help. Thanks for sharing! - Lori (Team Member)
