How Have PsA Symptoms Impacted Your Life?

Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis advocate Alisha Bridges talks about how her early psoriatic symptoms and how this diagnosis has impacted her life.

“For me personally, I really have been in denial about the PsA part and its almost like there was an instance where I didn’t even want to admit it because…that means more doctors that means more medicine so let me just ignore it and maybe it won’t exist anymore but in doing that and not treating your joints, it can just lead to irreversible damage…I think about the increased cost for co-pays I think about the time that it is going to take away from me. I also consider the same runaround that you have trying to find an effective treatment for your psoriasis now I have to do this for my joints… it’s terrifying.” Shares Alisha.
