Welcome to the

Psoriatic Arthritis Connect Group

,
22 Members

This online group serves the members of our arthritis community who are living with Psoriatic Arthritis and related conditions from across the country. We invite those who are looking for support, education, robust programming, expert speakers, and connection to join us and meet others who understand.  

Live Yes! Connect Groups offer connections, education, and empowerment. Adults living with arthritis from across the country come together online for professional- and volunteer-led sessions on topics, as well as fun group activities.

We offer a place of understanding and encouragement for both people living with arthritis and their loved ones. Group participants become self-advocates, develop self-management skills, and learn how to not just survive life with arthritis but to thrive.

Happy New Year! 

What is one thing you will like to focus on in 2023?

For me, I want to be better at listening to my body when it gives me signs that a flare up is coming vs. powering through the stiffness and pain.

I'm not sure how this works, but am desperate for someone who understands, and can help me find my way back to positivity. Advanced Lymes Disease led to three types of arthritis, including psoriatic, and a life that I only sometimes recognize. I'm having a holiday flare now, and would like to learn to rewire my brain to better cope with the pain. I'm a strong Christian, and hope to connect with others on the same path as me.
