Hi all

I was diagnosed with Psoriatic arthritis at 18 but suffered with joint pain all throughout my teenage years. I am 26 now so you would think that I would have come to terms with it by now. I have debated joining something like this for a long time but today decided to go for it. I haven't really had anyone to talk to about how I feel or what it's like because no one really understands. I struggled a lot with my diagnosis for a very long time and pulled away from my friendship groups. I'm glad I decided to do this, it will be nice to talk to people who understand and are going through the same things as I am :)
