Profile Information

Hi my name is joe, my friends call me joe dirt. I am 43 when i was 19 i had plaque psoriasis so bad (How bad was it) it was so bad every friday i got paid i went to K-mart for bedding for the week because i blead every night in bed. Over the years till about 34 it slowly went away (HA HA away). I had it everywhere really everywhere. Boom it was gone. At 37 I got hand and foot and psoriatic arthritis so bad i could not pick-up a cup of anything, shower myself, feed myself or any other basic task to take care of myself. I am so grateful for my best friend and wife of 20 years who was there for me every step of the way. I lost my company, well had to sell it. I have been on Disability for the past year and my two sons have done a lot of the to-do-list for me. I know life is tough, and this is only some of my story. I never had anyone to talk to who knows how i feel. I know you do and would like to here from you.

Hi, Patsy
thanks for your reply. I have read a lot of others comments and I don't feel so alone. Mine is the other way. Real bad on my hands. But I can only stand on my feet for about 10 min at a time. my bones hurt so bad. It feels like they where hit with a hammer. then when I sit I can only do that for a short period, cause it is hard too get moving. the doc. said without any meds. i will be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life. with the meds out there at least i will have a liver, Kidneys and any other organs i might need. thanks for reading. hope you and your family has a wonderful Christmas.

Hi Joe,
I also have hand and foot, mostly on my feet. I am currently taking Remicade infusions. Working great for the arthritis not so much for the psoriasis. Had the last infusion on Nov 24th and now on my 2nd antibiotic, talking lowering your immune system, I'm starting to wonder if I have any left.

Hi, my name is joe, I am 43
I have hand and and foot and psoriatic arthritis to this day and had plaque from age 19 to 34. I have tried raptiva, humira, and was in the hospital for 7 days. I never get sick never you? after 5 years i can type again, well for now. never mind the cure (there is not one) what's for the pain. Oh ya! and some pill for heart transplant patients. did not work there were others.
