Beth's Story

Having psoriasis when I was in fourth grade and ten years old. Had on scalp and ears got worse, later on my face always had cloud of skin falling from my head and on clothes--got made fun of a lot. Later on,  got arthritis from it early 20's when I had my first child could not walk. Now that I'm in my fifties lots of back and joint pain; they say it's mild. I know I'm lucky, others have it much worse. It just hurts still.
