Secrets, coping

Having a pso here is now considered a disability. So I decided to get an ID for it. They told me about the benefits of the ID. She mentioned a lot but my eyes went *blingbling* when I heard the word DISCOUNT. I guess I'll be eating out more now. Lol

Really a disability?I have never heard that , In severe cases i suppose i could see that yes, But i never consider myself as disabled Honey,hmmmmm, maybe i should, i get a car, I can park where i like :) Yeah, things are looking up, oh and i may get a flat to live in too?, hmmmm, so i still need to work ? Sound great Honey lol :)

Yes, i was actually confused when I heard that. I also don't considered myself a disabled person. They said that the reason why they added psoriasis there is because it has no cure to it yet and it is under the psychosocial. With parking, I don't think I should abused my privilege to that, besides there's other people who actually need them. I know myself, I can still do things. I'll just go with the food discounts. Now I can support my diet. 😂

This is also news to me. Never thought I'd actually see myself as disabled but hey, there's always a first for everything. Honey, I agree with you on the food thingy. The discounts on certain food will be great but my food is already cheap. Veggies, chicken and fish (maybe discount on fish as that is way too expensive). Very interesting on the disabled subject.
John, imagine we could get discount on housing because of our P? This will never happen in SA lol. Oh and special parking...I can do with that. ;) but like Honey said, there are people out there who need it more unless they put a sign up saying "For P sufferers only"

Well Michelle,I knew someone who was classified as disabled with Asma so who knows what could be disabled next, Yes you get a lot of help if you are disabled, i known people get given a new car, a disable badge so you can park anywhere , Yes some get housed and benefits ,I pesonaly wouldnt want be classified as disabled, not yet anyway,Usually people that may get this help with P would have severe Psoriatic arthritis , I knew someone here 2 years ago who was classified as disabled,I did give him a lifestyle plan to try help symptoms,he wasnt interested but it was his choice of course,I would be ck
classified as disabled if i couldnt work because of this affecting my life but it would be through arthritis and not P,Psoriasis is still looked at as a skin condition and nothing else,If i broke out severe say with P, i would probably be hospitalised for a time and not be paid from my work, as i am not there they dont pay,Luckily, i am not in a bad way at all :) Just my back can play up, my left shoulder, tennis elbow but its okay, could be worse , I have to remember i am getting older anyway:)

Yes, I dont think we get discount in the Uk at the monent with P Michelle, but you never know?, I think it will be assesed if psoriasis is affecting your life that much?If i was disabled off work, theres plaenty i would like to do,i have a lot of model kits and light them up to build but would like my own place to do these kits , Its a cheapish hobbie or i would be building other things but thats too costly :)

Honey @honey

Actually there's no discounts on housing or building. It's more on discounts on food, medicines, hospital services, transportation, ticket for cinemas, concert, plane tickets, special sits, lines, parking lot and prioritization in any events. They said that you might also get free things but that depends on a place or business. Sadly, there's no free things offered in my place. That's what the staff says. Lol


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

tickets for cinemas, concerts,plane tickets?? wow, I can do with that apart from the concerts (too many people)
There's no free things like that offered in my country when you have a disability Honey. Good thing as everyone might become disable in an instant only to get those discounts. :)

I have been on disability for my PA since 2007. More days than not I'm barely able to get out of bed on my own. My husband usually has to massage my legs so I'm able to get to the bathroom. Idk what I would do if he wasn't here. This disease has taken so much in terms of quality of life, time w/my kids, depression, work. I've tried to go back to work but it makes the pain 10xs worse. I'm only 47 but I feel like I'm 90 some days. This disease is no joke!!! It can really destroy a person!!!

Sorry to hear this Christina,, What are currently doing to help psoriatic arthritis symptoms?I am on Diet/lifestyle changes and have been for over 2 years and i can say my joints are great near nothing,I took out so many things from Diet , sugar is the worst evil for us as well as other things with arthritis,My nails look good aswell no falling off nail beds or nasty looking fungus,If you want help let me know? Diet/lifestyle changes is a choice, Some changes in diet/lifestyle is better than none but, it is a choice a choice for everyone, If you want my help ?, let me know ,I wish you well Christina
