Hi everyone. I’ve only recently been diagnosed with PsA aged 60 I’m still getting used to the idea and having some emotional difficulties with it all.
As I learn more about the disease I am becoming more and more certain that I’ve had it in a much milder form for decades. I’ve been blighted virtually life long, with depression; exhaustion; odd pains that almost sent me to the doctor, but then cleared up; and a very minor skin complaint.
Now it’s becoming clearer as my symptoms intensify, that it’s been the one thing all along. I suspect that my father was a sufferer in silence and that two of my kids may also be affected.
Isn’t it strange that I never even heard of PsA until a year ago?
