I’m Jenn. I am from Vancouver BC and I was diagnosed with PsA at 30. Since then I have collected a few more autoimmune diseases I wish I hadn’t. Hypothyroidism, inflammatory bowel disease, and diabetes. I’ve been on Humira since 2007. Initially it put me into a full remission. It’s not working as well as it used to unfortunately. My psoriasis is back with a vengeance and because the Humira controls my joints, no one is wanting to add or change anything.
I own my own artisan business. I make and design silver jewelry. Unfortunately during Covid19 my business has dried up as all my markets have her canceled. For now, I am making and selling masks for donations to my favourite charity. I love animals and I have 2 beautiful golden retrievers, Jacob is 4 and Sophie is 2. They keep my husband and I on our toes.
Looking forward to meeting and talking to people that have the same subtype of arthritis as I do. I am always the odd diagnosis out when I am in treatment. Everyone else has primarily RA or Lupus. It’s rare to meet someone else with PsA.
