Jennifer's Journey With PsA
I was diagnosed almost eleven years ago... I’ve had psoriasis since I was six years old. I’ve been able to manage pretty easily with OTC’s, topicals, warm baths, and then mild scripts such as meloxicam up until the last couple years... the pain and loss of function have increased dramatically.
Others do not understand
And I’ve pretty much rolled with the punches, grateful that this is something that I can live with, and not something much, much worse... but the most devastating thing to me has been the horrible treatment from my coworkers... they seem to think this isn’t real and the emotional pain coupled with the physical pain has made me more down into a deep depression. I thought of leaving, but I know I’ll deal with this wherever go, so why start the battle anew. I just want to stay under my quilt.
How do you plan to recognize PsA Awareness Month?
