Working while living with and managing a chronic condition like psoriasis can create challenges. Learning to balance the demands of one’s job with the changing aspects of your psoriasis isn’t an easy task. For some working with psoriasis may require communicating with colleagues and supervisors your needs, advocating for yourself, and collaborating with your supervisor for solutions that help balance the needs of your job and the needs of your condition. For others, psoriasis may mean exploring options like applying for disability if your psoriasis symptoms have impacted your ability to work.
Work is often very difficult, whether it is dealing with coworkers not understanding, being uncomfortable, or just having trouble showing up.
