I'm 28yr old female with Psoriatic Arthritis (diagnosed last Nov) & possibly Sjogrens (waiting to see Rheumy again to confirm but my GP says ticking all the symptom boxes
I have PsA in 4 joints, it's been really hard adjusting to it all. I've always been fiercely independent and my coping mechanisms to date have been overdoing it and suffering. Slowly I'm learning to ask for help.
The worst thing for me is the fatigue, and the lack of anyone understanding what it is ('oh you're tired' - how I wish it was just feeling tired). And the loneliness of it, feeling very isolated.
I'm on Methotrexate & Naproxen but neither seem to be helping much yet & the MTX has made my liver inflammed in the last bloods. So waiting to see where I'm going with this all.
I still work, although that is becoming a struggle. And I live in London with my cat & husband (always in that order).
