Do you have a story to tell about living with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis?
Personal journeys: 2018
I was diagnosed with psoriasis when I was 5-years old after I got my ears pierced. I found out that my father had it as well and I inherited it through him.
I have had psoriasis since the age of 12; it changed my life from going out socially to becoming home bound never having the confidence to go out in the daytime, only in the dark hours.
I have had psoriasis for 10 years now. About a year ago my rheumatologist who put me on methotrexate, retired, so I was taken off my medication by a new rheumatologist due to high liver function test.
I have recently been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis in my spine, at 42. I feel like I'm 102, and been through three different doctors this is my last one in my city.
