A Look At What Those With Psoriatic Arthritis Have To Say

Advice can be a tricky thing to manage, especially when it is unwanted. It is forward, hurtful, and isolating. It feels like you are being told directions to a place that folks have never been to.

Finding people who understand the inconsistency and pain that come with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is sometimes half the challenge. For when we find someone who understands, that connection relieves the deep level of anxiety that we are no longer alone.

Advice from those who live it

We aim to provide a safe and supportive environment here at Psoriatic-Arthritis.com. Those who choose to engage in our forums, share their stories, and provide kind comments are the ones who create and provide a beautiful sense of community.

We do not take this responsibility lightly – our top priorities have been to reshare information we have learned back to the community to provide emotional support, important resources, and that right kind of reassuring validation. This includes sharing results from our annual In America Survey, which surveys real people living with psoriatic arthritis.

Straight from those who understand, we have created the video below. To amplify their offered words of support, we invite you to click play.
