A silent hidden illness

I have had my psoriasis for over 20 years now and seem to have it in places different from others, thankfully not on my face.

In 2008 I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and this changed my life, had to be given a walking stick, inject with methotrexate every week and various medications. Walking is so restricted which affects a lot of things I do or should I say use to do.

Joints can be so painful and uncomfortable, tiredness due to the disease and the meds you have to take. A silent hidden illness which needs to be recognised more.
