Never imagined!!!!

Diagnosed 8/15/15, been turned down for disability twice – it’s with appeals council now. I’ll be 61 in June. Each day is a new day, I might cry some, sleep some, limp thru the store and the next day 25 per cent better. I want to feel good every day. I keep praying.

    Hi dalmav 41,

    Thank you for sharing your story with us. I’m so sorry to hear about your struggles with receiving disability. I sincerely hope you find some success with the appeals council. Please keep us posted on the outcome of this appeal! We’re here for you, and rooting for you!

    Also, reading your comments about feeling like each day is a different day, and how you can feel different ways, reminded me of an article I think you may connect with. The author discusses how life with PsA can be a roller coaster of sorts, which is what your story brought to mind as I was reading it. You can find this article here,

    As I said earlier, we’re here for you, and hope you will keep us posted on your journey. We’re grateful that you’ve shared your experiences with us, and that you’re a member of our community!
