Moving Forward Together
It is time to put ourselves and our communities back together, piece by piece.
This year has taken a toll on the social and familial bonds that play a large role in our health and happiness. Because of the systemic inflammatory nature of psoriatic disease, you are already at higher risk for comorbidities, including anxiety and depression, and the pandemic for so many of us has pushed our mental health to the brink.
For some, psoriatic arthritis is an isolating disease. It can be difficult to get around or perform everyday life activities and job-related tasks. The pandemic has only made this more challenging.
But there’s hope. There is a lot of hope. Every day more members of our households and communities are being vaccinated. Offices, schools, restaurants and day cares are reopening. Like the first flowers of spring, we are slowly blooming, testing the air, and lifting our faces to the sun.
Change can be scary, even when it is positive. So what can we do to take small steps in the right direction, together? How do we safely and slowly put this past year behind us and refocus our attention on our health, happiness and goals?
