Single mama directing my little California circus with a bit o' psoriasis thrown in for levity.

I've put together that my significant hair loss is due to meds. I've always had thick hair but have lost about 1/3 of it. My skin is great but my arthritis is just as painful as a year ago. I didn't realize I was so vain about my hair but I am.

California has a #StayHome order, which makes dating a challenge! My child talked me into trying online dating and I scheduled a social-distancing meet for this morning - only to be stood up! I'm done. Seems the single life is for me.

Today I had planned to drive to San Francisco and get on a flight to Copenhagen and then cruise around the Baltic with friends. I knew a few months ago my trip would be delayed due to Covid19, but today is still a sad day.

I don't have a partner, but sex is one of those things I think about all the time. I try to have an orgasm every day - it's my reset to diminish pain. Does anyone else make time for daily satisfaction a priority?

I probably shouldn't be surprised to read that folks here have psoriasis AND psoriatic arthritis AND fibromyalgia, but it it's kind of nice to know that others are surviving. I'd really like to get to a place of thriving. I am hopeful.

I'm writing from the middle of California where Covid-19 is blooming. My family has immune issues so we've been home for 84 days. I officially have psoriatic arthritis. I've started on methotrexate. How have any of you found that to work?

Has anyone been home during Covid-19 and find themselves worried to go back out into the world?

It is cold and foggy today in the middle of California. I am wishing for a soaking tub to immerse my body! Who loves a hot bath with Epsom salts?

I'm several days into a case of cellulitis. I often wake up scratching one leg or foot with the other foot, and assume this is what started the infection. I wash and moisturize my feet every night before bed and I keep my toenails trimmed.

Oh, these feet of mine are at it again. Before I know it a little scratching turns into raw flesh. Yuck!

With the change in weather, I keep windows and doors open more, but the mosquitos seem really bad this year. If I scratch a bite it will usually turn into a psoriasis patch. Does that happen to anyone else?

I'm thankful that I only have to deal with psoriasis. And Fibromyalgia. And chronic pain. I'm thankful I only have to deal with three bothersome things, but in general, life is pretty grand.
