The news is full of everything about corona/covid-19. Sooooooo many people who have Psoriasis/Psoriatic Arthritis and are on biologics keep asking, ‘should i stay on my meds?’
My answer… my thoughts and i heard this from a doctor.
My thoughts? Yes definitely. I have both PsO and PsA. Without the medicine it attacks the joints and i can plan on an early retirement and being unable to walk. No thanks. Treat it naturally? Im not taking chances i like to walk.
What a doctor told me. On a scale of 1 -10 10 being the best immune system in the world, superhuman if you will, and 1 being none (think of ‘the boy in the plastic bubble’ i liked that movie) a normal persons immune system is a 5. Being Psoriatic means im at an 8 or a 9. So taking treatment only knocks it down to a 6 or a 7, my immune system is so superior. Ive had the flu, for a couple hours. Ive had colds that didnt last a day. I cut myself and its gone the next day.
So… Why would i stop my medication? I wont willingly.
What will i do? I will eat right, wash my hands properly, and take my vitamins as i always do, and in addition Ill be careful, and self quarantine.
Please be safe dont shake hands touch your face and sneeze on people. Dont travel unless absolutely necessary. Dont have house parties. Just plain dont be stupid.
