Any resources to explain moderate to severe psoriatic arthritis to family and friends?

There is a lot of info out there on the stages of the disease from mild to moderate to severe. I have been experiencing a flare with extreme pain in feet, Achilles, heels, enthesitus, and pain in hips and shoulders. Extreme exhaustion and having a hard time working. For about two months now while changing biologics.

How can I help family and friends understand psoriatic arthritis?

I am having a hard time explaining to family and friends and they don’t get it. Are there any good articles that aren’t someone’s personal story that explain this severe part of the disease. They also always ask what they can do to help. Is there any good reading for caregivers on how to help someone that’s going through what I am?
