Since July 2014, I have lost a total of 17 pounds. Well, depending on what I ate yesterday, it could be 22 pounds instead. And if you catch me after a vacation, it might drop to 15 pounds. Despite these fluctuations, my weight on most days is the same as it was in my 30s. However, like back then, I wouldn't mind shedding an additional 5 pounds.

As someone with psoriatic disease, fatigue is a constant presence in my life. Interestingly, my fatigue is more pronounced with psoriatic arthritis than with psoriasis. A few years ago, while I was in law school, I developed stiffness in my neck from studying in an uncomfortable desk chair.

When I had hip replacement surgery, my children were in grades 6 and 3. It was a difficult time because I was in a lot of pain and unable to do much physically.
