Hi everyone, this disease can make you feel like you are all alone. It's reassuring to know that that there are others nearby that understand what life is like with PSA. I've been experiencing my first really bad flare up since being diagnosed in 2011. While fatigue is always a daily struggle, it has been really bad lately and has me worried about doing my job (I'm in sales and have to be motivated and upbeat everyday no matter how I feel). Do any of you have any ideas on combating fatigue without taking a bunch of additional meds?
We should create a day once a year or more when we can get together in St. Louis... I know it will be hard for us all to find a day but, maybe we can?! I haven't met many people with PsA besides online.
Hello! I live in Effingham, IL! I am actually doing training for work in Bethalto, IL until Sept 5th which is on the way to St. Louis. I live about 2 hours East of St. Louis.
Hello, I am in Branson Mo. I have been dealing with Psa for about 2 years now. I am almost in bed all the time due to my left knee has fused together and i cant bend it or put any wait on it. And now my right knee is acting up and not letting me put all my wait on it. My left foot all toes have that sausage look to them and are red and covered with plaque Ps. Well that is a little about me.
So glad to find a support group with people from StL. I feel all alone sometimes dealing with it. Even my family, who see my struggles daily, don't understand how hard this is t deal with.
Welcome to our group Leah, and Happy Birthday!
I am so glad you found us!

This is my first time posting. I have recently been diagnosed after years of arguing with doctors. I keep trying to keep my spirits up but the medication isn't doing anything and the pain is getting worse. Today is a bad day. Besides the disease…
