Living with psoriasis.

Psoriasis can impact so many facets of day-to-day life. Truly, it can be a burden living with psoriasis.

How does psoriasis impact your life? What do you do to manage these impacts?

  1. I always have fatigue. It rules my life. I work 8 hrs a day . During that day of work I sit maybe 30 minutes.
    After work & errands/chores
    I sit til I go2 to tired from physical work from work that I hurt all over. Ice helps
    Stretching out helps some too
    Hard getting in shape when your exausted most day

    1. , the fatigue is really something else. I have suffered with this to the extreme over the years, so I can fully empathise. Mine didn't start until I developed psoriatic arthritis, but I know lots of people do get fatigue with their psoriasis. I definitely hear you on it being hard to get in shape with the exhaustion. Sometimes just meeting the basic needs of our bodies is more than we have the energy for. Are you on any treatments for your psoriasis at the moment?

    2. Ugh, I know this feeling all too well and I hate you have to always deal with relentless fatigue that never seems to end. It's a good thing that you stretch and are able to use ice. Anything that helps is a plus. Try not to put too much pressure on yourself about working out. Dealing with a lot and overcoming fatigue can almost seem impossible to do. Running errands and working long hours is definitely a workout within itself so give yourself grace. I hope you're able to get more down time soon so you can get the rest you need.
