Feeling Alone with Psoriatic Arthritis

I was diagnosed in January 2019 and have failed two DMARDs. I was due to start Biological on Friday but unfortunately, I have a bad chest infection so now put back.

I'm constantly in pain, can't eat properly, so depressed all time, and have no support. I am alone. This illness destroyed my marriage as my husband couldn't cope with my constant pain and fatigue. You all know the story. Nobody believes how sore you are and they say, "oh it's just a sore back" or "I know how it feels." They do not know how it feels to have every part of you in agony. Having to walk with sticks or not at all some days.
