It’s a real pain

I have several immune diseases, but psoriatic arthritis is the most painful of them all. I tried 2 biologics and got horrible side effects. I live with joint pain daily, but I would say the tendonitis and fatigue are the worst.

My family doesn't understand psoriatic arthritis

Most of all my family, especially my husband, just does not understand. My house is a mess and I just want to cry. I have absolutely zero energy. I was diagnosed in 2011, but live with the pain and try to smile it away. It is a tough disease. Hugs to anyone who suffers the pain and fatigue. It can really get you depressed at times.

Do you have a story about living with psoriatic arthritis to share too?
