I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis in November of 2016 but know I’ve had it so much longer. The fatigue is the hardest thing to deal with. I loved the article on Beauty and the beast. Totally me! I also have ankolizing spondylitis and maybe fibromyalgia. I have PDA and had stents put into my iliac arteries, both legs at age 45. This whole thing stinks!

    Thanks Casey for listening! I read the article you suggested. Some good tips! I have reduced the sugar in my diet over the last 2 weeks and that seems to be Helping! I am such a sugar freak and that is the truth!! It’s nice to know that we are not Alone! Amy
