I have suffered with psoriasis since I was 5yrs old (I'm soon to be 42) over 90% of my body was covered by plaque psoriasis. From the top of my head to the soles of my feet, fingernails and toenails included, and not to mention the older I got the worst arthritis became as well, and nonetheless was embarrassed by the disease itself and I had no control over it, it just took over.

If I'm being truly honest I hated looking at myself in the mirror, in my eyes, I was a freak and felt so ugly..I was cursed for the rest of my life with this disease..or so I thought.

Searching for a treatment that worked

I have used every single medication out there to help treat my disease, from tar baths to light therapy, to topical ointments and oral meds and NOTHING, I MEAN NOT ONE SINGLE THING WORKED UNTIL I DISCOVERED HUMIRA. This medication has completely changed my life. I don't have 1 spot on my body, my nails have completely cleared up and my joints aren't inflamed and I'm no longer in pain.

The confidence alone this medication has given me because I no longer feel I should be in some sort of freak show has been remarkable! So yes..there is Hope!! HANDS DOWN Humira has changed my life. So if you have ever felt like I did most all my life, hiding behind pants and long sleeve shirts in summer weather, and feeling no confidence (because of a disease that only others with this disease can understand and relate to) there is hope!
