Diane Talbert had psoriasis for more than 50 years and psoriatic arthritis for 20 years or so but was not diagnosed with PsA until 10 years ago. She is a blogger and an advocate for psoriasis while educating others about this disease.
Diane looks forward to sharing, learning and growing with the community here and invite you to join us on this journey.
Diane has said: "I would like to share something that gives you a little bit more insight of who I am. I share my pains to inspire not for pity; my triumphs are your triumphs in the hopes of touching the life of those also affected by this autoimmune disease."
Diane recently spoke at The Food and Drug Administration about her life with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. She attends Capitol Hill yearly and speaks at Town Hall Meetings about this disease.
Since her younger years, the struggle has continued, but Diane has learned how to better manage her condition. This battle has taken on a life of its own and she has made it her mission to help other psoriasis and psoriatic disease patients know that they can come out fighting.
The ultimate goal is to stop the stigma associated with this disease and ultimately find a cure.
