Hello

Hi,
I’m not newly diagnosed but I didn’t know where to introduce myself. Sincere apologies if I’m posting my first discussion in the wrong category.
I’ve had psoriasis for over 20 years and psoriatic arthritis for over 7 years now.
I went through the methotrexate and sulfasalazine trials before ending up on Enbrel around 6 years ago.
Enbrel was a life changer for me, it made my life a hundred times better when I first started. I think the effect may not be as profound now but that’s for a different post I think.
Just wanted to say hello and I hope you’re all as well as can be at this time 😀
Best wishes,
Greg.

  1. Hello and nice to meet you, ! How are you feeling today?

    Thank you so much for sharing your story with the community. I'm sorry to read that Enbrel may not be having as much of an effect as it once did. I have only taken methotrexate so far but I'm always interested in hearing about people's experiences with the biologics. I'll keep an eye out for your post!


    Hope you're managing okay today! 😀 -Catherine, Community Moderator

    1. Thanks for the warm welcome 😀
      Having a few problems of late but I’m ok thank you and trying to stay positive, which I know is really important.
      Take care
      Greg.

      1. You're more than welcome, ! Sorry to hear that you're having a difficult time at the moment - I hope you are coping okay. Feel free to message me if you ever need to talk. Sending hugs! -Catherine, Community Moderator

      2. thank you Cathy. 😀

    2. Welcome ! Biologics can get less effective over time, so there might come a point when you have to switch to something new. My brother has been on Enbrel for a few years now and it has been a life-changer for him as well.
      Don't worry about categories for discussion. We can always change the tags so they end up in the right categories. We're just happy to have you here.
      Warm wishes! - Lori (Team Member)

      1. Hi , thank you for the welcome.
        I’ve experienced many things over the years with Enbrel but on the whole it has had a huge positive effect.
        I’ll make another post soon about my experiences lately to compare with others.
        It’s a bit like that scene in Jaws when they were all getting drunk on the boat and comparing scars from previous encounters. Haha 😀
        Thank you and stay safe
        Greg.

        1. Ooops sorry that reply didn’t seem to work. I’ll try again. 😀 Thanks hope you are keeping well 😀
