When Psoriatic Arthritis is a Third Wheel

Psoriatic arthritis doesn't just take a toll on our bodies, but on our relationships as well. Whether it is a romantic, platonic, work related, or budding friendship, psoriatic arthritis becomes the third wheel. From having to cancel plans at the last minute to being unable to communicate pain levels, psoriatic arthritis impacts our ability to maintain relationships.
