Introducing… ME!

Friends, family, internet strangers, welcome to my (sadly, second attempt) Psoriasis blog!  I look forward to sharing my experiences, tips, hacks, and anything else that I have learned since 2005 when I was diagnosed with Psoriasis!

First, lets start with who I am.  My name is Krista and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  I live by the ocean with my amazing husband and my two beautiful black kitties.  I enjoy horseback riding, hanging out with my family, and eating potato chips.

In 2005, when my body started changing, so did my skin.  I was diagnosed with Psoriasis, and a few years later in 2012 I developed Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA).  For those of you who are not 100% sure, Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that causes a build of of skin cells characterized as red, scaly, patchy spots over the body.  There are a few different kinds of Psoriasis, the most common being plaque Psoriasis, which I have.  PsA affects the joints, particularly fingers, toes, knees, and elbows, all of which I have, plus some…  PsA affects a small percentage of people with Psoriasis, and of course I was lucky enough to be part of that percentile.

I have tried almost any medication, remedy, natural resource, and “hack” I could get my hands on.  There are so many things that I have found that work (for me at least) and that don’t work.

I can’t wait to share with everyone my experiences!
