If you're one of the 1.5 million Americans living with psoriatic arthritis (PsA), you know all too well how emotionally and physically draining the condition can be. Not only does PsA have no cure, but it also impacts the joints and the skin, causing symptoms like joint pain and stiffness as well as itchy, scaly skin patches. It's a lot to take in and manage! The good news is that it's possible to live a fulfilling life with PsA and even control some of the most challenging symptoms. It may just take some trial and error (and patience!) to figure out what works best.

Aside from seeing a rheumatologist for treatment, one of the best ways to find an impactful care routine is by connecting with other PsA warriors and learning what's helped them. (Not to mention, it can be cathartic to meet others who are going through a similar journey.) That's why we gave four women living with PsA an opportunity to connect over video chat to swap diagnosis stories and share what lifestyle changes have made the biggest impact on their well-being. Listen in on their conversation to learn from their collective experiences, and nab some takeaways that might just work well for you, too.
