By Penny Greenblatt as told to Kendall Morgan

I’ve been living with psoriatic arthritis for nearly 40 years. It took a very long time for me to get diagnosed properly. I was in my early 30s and my first symptom was eye inflammation. Doctors treated it as conjunctivitis. It took 7 months to go away. Then, I was told I had one type of tendonitis after another. It was 7 more years before joint pain was everywhere. I saw an internist and he said, “Oh, it’s probably a little arthritis.” 


I was in my late 30s. Somebody that age shouldn’t be taking handfuls…
