Psoriasis since Oct 2017. Learning fast! Also have Trigeminal and Occipital Neuralgia and severe nerve damage in my leg. Mostly bed bound and only leave the house for hospital appointments. My partner and my Son keep me going.

Hey NikSam, welcome to Flaym! I was prescribed immunosuppressive medications last year for severe plaque and guttate psoriasis. The dermo told me to research the medication before I took it and I did, but for me I wanted to try other things first. So I did! A year on and my guttate psoriasis is completely clear and my plaque is calm. But! If I have future severe outbreaks and trying other things didn't help, I would consider the meds again. Its about quality of life isn't it...
Yes I absolutely think that if I were in your shoes I'd make that choice to refuse immunos very differently. It was only because there was stuff I hadn't tried yet that I turned them down. But I would do it in a heartbeat if my suffering was as you describe. I'm thinking of you, and hoping your options will help you along the road to recovery 💚
