Patient Leader

First diagnosed in 2007 with Psoriasis, but it was the 2nd opinion I received in 09 that floored me. I then found the National Psoriasis Foundation and a mentor. That mentor meant the world to me and a year later I started volunteering to give back what I had received. I was then diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis in 2011-2012. I diagnosed myself and then sought a Rheumatologist who disagreed... I found another.
