What's New in Psoriasis

I'm new here!

Hi, my name is steph4ever. I'm here because I have my issues than National Geographic magazine.
I can list everything wrong with me but I can’t tell you very much good about me. I always thought I had a deep sense of empathy and compassion but the older I have gotten the more I’ve become aware the less magical and innocent I’ve become. Numerous situations I were never meant to be in lead to and feeling of the end of innocence for me. I miss old Steph. Steph now has been in help and taking meds for along time but since the pandemic help is harder to get. And I’m scared I’m going to be left behind.

New to group - hi there!

Hi everyone, I'm happy to be here. Since age 11 I've been diagnosed with Psoriasis. And on my 26th my doctor told me I also have RA. Now on immunosuppressive medication I forget sometimes we take our health for granted. Hopefully we can support eachother on here and love to meet more of you! Cheers, Lieke

What’s your most challenging autoimmune symptom to manage?

Autoimmune diseases can be tricky to navigate, especially when it comes to managing the consistently fluctuating or unpredictable symptoms they bring. (Don’t even get us started on how hard they can be to diagnose, too!)

In addition, some symptoms (or all of them, honestly) can heavily impact your productivity, mental health, and life as a whole.

What autoimmune symptoms do you find most challenging to manage and regulate? (Butterfly rash? Temperature regulation? Joint pain? Inflammation?)

My hair is falling out

I bleached my hair about a month and a half ago. It's been a little longer than that since I last needed to use my medicated shampoo for my scalp psoriasis. But my stress is very high and my scalp flared up really bad. So I showered tonight. My hair got super dry and brittle and started falling out! I'm so sad and down. I tried to do the right thing to prevent my hair from falling out and it happened anyway. I need to get my hair cut and colored sometime next month if any of my friends are available. Ugh it's so depressing.
