No light at the end of the tunnel

I understand that most don’t know what is like living with this disease and I’m okay with that. That’s why I’m here. I feel alone. I was diagnosed three years ago, started Humira six months ago. It has helped a little with flare ups and took care of the psoriasis. I have arthritis in my back and feet among other inflammatory issues…and depression, anxiety. I have a great team of doctors and a wonderful family. My bed had been my friend the past five days. I have a herniated disc to have surgery on soon and the arthritis damage in my back doesn’t help. Fed up and over it. I’m 35. I hate not being there for the ones I love.
