Living with psoriasis begins with learning as much as you can about it in order to take better control of this condition. This section of ENBREL.ca is a good place to start. It will help give you a basic understanding of psoriasis and the associated symptoms. It provides information on how to build a Psoriasis Treatment Team, and where to find helpful information about psoriasis on the Web and in books.
In addition, think about joining an organization such as The Psoriasis Action Network (PAN). PAN is a group of individuals living with psoriasis who work to raise awareness about this condition. They accomplish this by sharing their personal stories with a variety of audiences, including members of the media, the general public, government agencies, the medical community, and fellow patients.
If you'd like to share your experiences with PAN, visit: http://www.psoriasis.org/advocacy. There is no membership fee.
