Do you have a story to tell about living with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis?
Personal journeys: 2017
I have had psoriasis since I was 14. I am 22 now and it has always been the same. I believe it is a disease, when people only associate you as 'psoriasis' rather than a person. Besides that, for me it is nothing to worry about, it is a part of my life and all aspects of my life, even the best and worse parts.
I am 54 and developed psoriasis around 5 years ago. When I first got it my body started tingling like pin pricks all over my body.
I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis 3 years ago and been on methotrexate until last May when the rheumatologist said I have fibromyalgia and took me off methotrexate.
My first attack was when I was 15, I was covered in lesions and I was in care. I was picked on and staff accused me of having scabies!
